Pawtucket Schools Score 10 Year Film Pro g ram Success 

B&H Filmosounds play basic role. The Pawtucket (R.I.) 
Schools' fihii program has been a success right from the 
start ten years ago. Today the city's schools use twenty 
16mm sound projectors for the three-thousand-odd class- 
room showings every year. And the program is continu- 
ally expanding! 
Here's what W. E. Berube. Director of the Audio -Visual 

Department, has to say about his experience with Filmo- 
sound projectors: 

"No small factor in the success of our film program is 
the dependability of Bell & Howell Filmosound projec- 
tion. This equipment is ruggedly built, quiet and depend- 
able in operation. Filmosounds have proved themselves 
in the varied and hard use we have put them to." 

The modern equipment at the disposal of this efficient staff assures 
the continued success of Pawtucket's Audio-Visual program. 

16mm Single-Case Filmosound. For classroom or auditorium, 
for sound or silent fihiis. Will reverse or show still pictures. 
Completely contained in a single case. Built-in 6-inch speaker 
operates within the case or removed from it. Larger, separate 
speakers available for single or multiple use. Brilliant lifelike 
motion pictures, natural flutterless sound. 

Guoronteed for life. During life of product, any defects in workman 
ship or material will be remedied free (except transportation).

THIS EDITORIAL would ordi- 
narily be devoted to a word of 
greeting to our many thousands of 
school readers to whom we dedicate 
this annual Fall Inventory of recent- 
ly-produced classroom materials. Suf- 
Ih r it to say that once again we are 
proud to bring you these many special 
pages of classified data on the films 
and filmstrips especially produced for 
the curriculum and representative »f 
the greatly-increased total resources 
of such tools now available. 

Our immediate concern is with the 
nationwide campaign aimed to con- 
vince official Washington and nianv 
state legislatures that this is the TIME 
for the miracle of Educational Tele- 
vision to come to pass. One small voice 
has recently been added to this clam- 
orous outcry. It says, in a recent 
editorial, "we believe positively and 
enthusiastically that television educa- 
tion is audio-visual education ..." 
This oracle also believes "that audio- 
visual plans and budgets that include 
television will prevent television 
budgets that eliminate audio-visual." 

Now let's look to the facts: (1) in 
New York State, from whence this 
oracle speaks, the state legislature is 
said to be approving a million dollar 
budget for a statewide educational t.v. 
network. (2) There isn't one dime in 
this budget for anything but expensive 
t.v. equipment. The University of Iowa 
is also currently asking the Iowa legis- 
lature for the same kind of budget. 
Neither one of these states have done 
anything yet about their poorly 
equipped classrooms. New York, in 
particular, has the saddest record of 
all with respect to per-capita pupil 
ex|)enditures for a-v tools. 

(3) There is one existing educa- 

tional television station to which we 
can look for comparative data. 
\\ OI-TV. owned and operated by Iowa 
Slate College, is the pioneer educa- 
tional televiser of the nation. For ten 
or eleven hours each day, this station 
purveys regular commercial network 
fare and nine-tenths of its time is de- 
voted to such "purposeful and mean- 
ingful visual images" as Ed Sullivan. 
Tom Corbett. Space Cadet. Susan 
Peters fsoap opera). Milton Berle. 
Kate Smith. Gabby Hayes, Arthur 
Godfrey, and the Cisco Kid. 

We think that educational t.v. has 
potentialities. So did classroom radio. 
But we think that its cost and its char- 
acteristics demand the searching light 
of wholesome inquiry. We think that 
we should continue to go before state 
legislatures with first thinf;s first. We 
don't see clearly the classroom possi- 
bilities of t.v.. for example. We don't 
agree that our school systems can get 
money for every harebrained scheme 
which visionaries propose. The U. S. is 
short of teachers, short of buildings, 
and it is tragically short of classroom 
application of the existing audio-visual 
tools which were designed for the 
completely democratic teaching sys- 
tems of our schools. 

An assembly hall setup for projected 
television would provide for the imme- 
diacy of interest of such events as the 
recent Japanese treaty signing or a 
presidential inauguration. But heaven 
help a L^. S. system of education which 
would put t.v. receivers into our class- 
rooms for mass "education" by the 
demagogues who might control them. 

Now that's pure speculation, of 
course, but we're going to speculate 
and examine every fragment of this 
educational t.v. campaign until the 
facts are clearly understood. Mean- 
while we propose that the more 
thoughtful segment of U. S. audio- 
\ isual leadership stick to our urgent 
and immediate need for unity on state- 
wide audio-visual budgets for class- 
room materials. They come first — OHC

E B Films Takes Over Instructional Films 
Library; Will Continue as Separate Group 

■¥ Aniiouncemeiit by Em Nclnpaedia Britannica Films that 
il has acquired the assets of Instructional Fihns, Inc., fol- 
lows the news of EBFilins' purchase of Films Incorporated, 
original parent company of Instructional. 

The acquisition of the two corporations, said Walter 
Colnies. president of EBFilnis, is part of an expansion 
Ijrograni to "provide efficient, dependable and extensive 
distribution of the best audio-visual materials in a maniipr 
impossible in the past. " 

Instructional Films. Inc.. has been reorganized by 
EBFilms to become the distribution agency for educational 
motion pictures made by independent producers needing 
the services of a complete sales organization. 

The 25 productions now in the Instructional Films 
liiirary will be taken over by EBFilms as the company 
becomes a whollv owned subsidiary. The parent compain 
begins distributing these films at once, and other produc- 
tions made by independent producers will be added to the 
Instructional Films library. 

Instructional Films, retaining its own corporate entity, 
will issue its own catalog and will distribute through its 
own staff as well as through the EBFilms sales organiza- 
tion, but Instructional's headquarters has been moved from 
New York to EBFilms' national office at Wilmette, III. 

School officials long have recognized the need of a 
■"showcase" and distribution agency for the independent 
producer, and feel that many quality productions do not 
reach their attention because the smaller studios do not 
have the physical means to provide distribution and pre- 
view prints or to give such services as replacement footage 
and teachers' guides. Mr. Colmes said. These services will 
be provided by Instructional Films as reorganized, he 

Instructional's library contains motion picture films 
on such topics as conservation, geography, communica- 
tions, and science, filmstrips on many of these subjects, 
also geo-historic map slides and recordings on democracy 
and current events. The area of materials coverage will 
be widened as quality materials are found. Mr. Colmes 

New Simmel-Meservey Distribution Outlet 

"K Instructional Films. Inc.. Encyclopaedia Britannica 
Films' newly acquired subsidiary, has acquired distribu- 
tion rights to the forty-four 16mm educational motion 
pictures produced by Simmel-Meservey Films, and new 
school films of the producer will be added to the Instruc- 
tional Films catalog as they are made. The announcemeni 
was made by Walter Colmes, president of EBFilms. and 
Louis C. Simmel. head of the Simmel-Meservey organiza- 

Instructional and its original parent compan\. Film~ 
Incorporated, have both been purchased by EBFilms. 

Simmel-Meservey, which now will concentrate entirely 
upon planning and making films, is a leading producer 
of classroom motion jiiclures. among them Dinner Parly. 
Junior From, ff heat: the Staff of Life, Monarch Butler jly. 
Guatemala Story, Historic New England, Land of the 
Incas, Introducing Britain, Obligations, and Modern 
Mexico. Simmel founded the companv in the early 1940s 
to produce teaching films and will continue to make educa- 
tional films for classroom and communitv.

to touch the [litture area while the film is mo\'ing — yet 
the film is firmly held between glass pressure plates 
during projection.

Educational Film Library Association 
Holds Eighth Annual Meeting at Chicago 

"K Delegates from 36 states, Canada and Puerto Rico were 
in attendance when Dr. Arthur Moehlman of the University 
of Iowa, using a Vu-Graph projector, began developing 
his subject, "Human Fission More Dangerous Than Atomic 
Fission," at the session signalizing the opening of tlie 
eighth annual conference of the Educational Film Library 
Association, leading off the National Audio-Visual Conven- 
tion in Chicago, on Thursday, July 26, at the Hotel 

With the challenging theme of "Resolving Conflicts 
Through Effective Conununication." the EFLA divided 
most of its second day operations into eight sectional 
meetings in order to permit as much discussion as possible 
on the many topics before the Conference. 

Sectional Meetings Prove Hif:hly Informative 

Among the subjects thus taken up were educational tele- 
vision, censorship, programming, film librarv mechanics, 
and film utilization, and the sectional sessions lived up to 
the high plane of informational discussion set at previous 
annual gatherings. The association's stand on censorship, 
incidentally, was indorsed by resolution at the business 

A panel of five producers and eight users of films 
answered questions from the floor that had arisen among 
the groups at a session conducted by Elizabeth Golterman 
of the St. Louis Public Schools. Replacement footage, com- 
munity acceptance of films and sliding price scales were 

At the general session on the second day Dr. Harold 

Lasswell of Yale University traced the development — and 
shortcomings — of communication in world affairs. 

Establishment of a production code to guide the makers 
of classroom pictures was proposed by Walter Colmes, 
president of Encyclopaedia Brittannica Films, at the final 
session. Mr. Colmes' subject was "The Promise of Better 
Instructional Films." 

Elect Ford Lemler as 1951-52 President 

The new president of EFLA is Ford Lemler. who directs 
the audio-visual aids activities at the University of Michi- 
gan. Mary Huber of the Enoch Pratt Free Library, Balti- 
more. Md., is vice president. Edward T. Schofield. retiring 
president, was named secretary and reelected to the directo- 
rate. Also named to the board was James W. Brown of the 
University of Washington. 

The screening of new films for classroom and general 
interest was on the agenda each evening of the Conference, 
with grouping of materials in the three categories of films 
for children, for high school and college, and for adults. 
Dr. Walter A. Wittich of the University of Wisconsin, was 
the chairman of a special meeting in this area. A highlight 
of film viewing came the final evening when the world 
premiere of Williamsburg Restored was given for tlie Films 
for Adults session. Films from the production departments 
of the Universities of Wisconsin, California. Indiana and 
Wayne were represented in the showings. 

Informal gatherings at the Conference included an open- 
ing reception and "coffee time" interchanges of shop talk. 

Co-chairmen of the program committee were Clyde 
Miller, Director of Audiphone-Visual Education, Ohio 
Department of Education, and Charles F. Schuller, Assist- 
ant Director. Bureau of Visual Instruction. Lfniversity of 
Wisconsin. They merit credit for a job well done.

Crowded Buildings, Teacher Shortage 
Highlight 1951 School Opening 
•k The six and one-half liilliim dollar 
atinuai business that is public educa- 
tion began its new year this fall with 
more than twenty-three million pupils 
expected to be in dail\ attendance. 
Crowded buildings and an acute teach- 
er shortage are the aftermath of the 
postwar birth rate climb. 

Dr. Ray C. Maul, research associate 
for the NEA's national commission 
on teacher education, estimates that 
10.000 of the nation's 603.000 elemen- 
tary teachers are not qualified for 
their jobs; in addition 80.000 new 
teachers are needed with only 30,000 
now available. The picture for 
audio-visual materials still appears to 
lack a national policy. Spotty distribu- 
tion of available materials, inadequate 
teacher preparation, and lack of na- 
tionwide information on ayailable tools 
are frequently cited obstacles.

Fall Inventory Summary 

* Especially noteworthy in this 1951 Annual 
Fall Inventory of recent audio-visual ma- 
terials is the number of filmstrip series 
represented in its opening pages and the 
equally large number of both filmstrip and 
motion picture subjects in the area of human 
relations and guidance. 

Obviously, some excellent titles will have 
been overlooked in so broad a summary 
of current materials representing so many 
specializing producers. One important area 
represents the college and university film 
productions which will be covered in the 
next issue. Another omission includes the 
numerous sponsored films, some of them 

The main purpose of this inventory is 
to feature those films especially produced 
for the classroom. Those whose main busi- 
ness it is to supply that need are given 
priority as to space and completeness. Fur- 
ther notes and additions will be presented

Ampro & RCA Magnetic Projectors 
Use New Magnastripe Process Film 

♦ One of the highlights of the N.AV.\ 
Trade Show this summer was the intro- 
duction of 16mm magnetic sound-on- 
film recorder-projectors using Magna- 
strif)e processed film which, by means 
of the application of a magnetic ovide 
coating, brings new advantages to 
schools in instantaneous magnetic re- 
cording as well as reproduction. No 
laboratory or studio facilities are re- 
quired. Both the .\mpro Corp. and 
RC.\ have adopted the Magnastripe on 
their new projectors. 

The RC.\ equipment, which lists at 
S800, is available only to RC\ dealers 
at first but will shortly be in supply 
for consumers also. The basic com- 
ponent is a standard high-quality 
16nxm sound projector which also will 
reproduce regular optically recorded 
sound. There is an electronic erase 
head, with mechanical provision against 
accidental erasure. 

For recording voice or music one 
merely turns a switch, and another 
control permits immediate playback. 

Magnastripe. new product of the 
Reeves Soundcraft Corp., uses a pat- 
ented process to produce a strij>e of 
magnetic oxide one-tenth inch wide on 
the base side of any single-sprocket 
standard black and white or color 
sound film. The striping can be applied 
before or after the taking of the pic- 
ture and even if the film already has 
an optical or photographic sound 
track. A frequency range of 80 to 7200 
cycles is provided.

pounds. Price, $400. 

Regardless of where vou show vour 16mm. sound movies, you want to 
be sure that vour audience gets the message. Sound distortion, resulting 
from too much amplification or poor acoustics, annoys listeners, hence 
often destrovs the effectiveness of the presentation. 

To help vou eliminate these difficulties, Kodak now offers a new 
Multi-Speaker Unit which combines three speakers in one case. With 
your Kodascope Pageant Sound Projector, this gives you a versatile, 
four-speaker setup. Placed at selected locations around a room or hall, 
thev produce effecti\e sound distribution even under adverse acoustical 

Each of the three 8" speakers is mounted on an individual baffle. One 
speaker carries a 35-ft. cord, the other two, i^-ft. cords, complete with 
connectors. When assembled, the 3 speakers make up into a compact 
carrving case weighing onlv 1 7 pounds. The complete unit matches the 
Pageant exactlv in appearance and contains space for a 2000-ff. film reel.

FOR A LONG TIME there has been a demand on the 
campus of Arkansas State Teachers College to record, 
on film, some cif the major campus events of the year. 
This demand finall) caused the public relations department 
lo dust off an ancient 16mm camera and do sometb+Hg 
about it. We began b\ collecting footage of special events 
on the cam|)us which ciintiiiiied for two years afler which 
lime we incorporated several of these ■'shots" into a com- 
posite film and titled it "Life on the A.STC Campus." 

The j)rocess continues. New scenes are being added and 
others are removed as experience dictates in ihe editing 
process. Facult\ members expressed enthusiasm after the 
first showing and suani|)pd us with suggestions. 

(iliibi Stiid\ (iroiip Reijtiesls a Film 

llie child stud> group sponsored by the department of 
Home Economics offered to finance a silent film on the 
nursery school for class use in the study of the pre-school 
child. Ife filmed il under their direction and compiled a 
rather coinplrlr account of a day in the nursery school. 

L nfortunalely we had a mishap in shooting some of 
the last scenes of the film. We broke the shutter to our 
camera which resulted in some faulty exposures, ife pur- 
chased a new camera and began inimeilialely to re-lake 
the film. 

We started looking for other activities that were worth- 
while to record. A twenty-five day field trip with a geog- 
raphy class thrcingli ihc western slates was a perfect set-up. 
A complete syllallu^ of the course was prepared whicb. 
served as a script. The trip was filmed- with good result|. 
Two later trips co\ering the same ground have cTiabled us 
lo add footage t<i the original print. A new tripod has 
been added to a\oi(l some of the "shaky" scenes of the 
earlier shots. 

A field trip through the Eastern States was filmed on a 
smaller scale, but with more selectivity. Only such scenes 
as fitted well into the objectives of the tour were selected. 
This trip has not yet been repeated; consequently we 
have had no chance for further work on the film. We 
know now of several desirable scenes that w(; will add 
when the trip is repeated. 

Both of these field-trip films are used by the geography 
department here and by in-service teachers throughout the 
state. Although these films can be more profitably used, 
for instructional purposes by the students who made the 
trips, their use has not been confined to them alone. Many 
other teachers are using them in connection with their 
geography classes. 

We have produced two films in cooperation with art 
and play production classes to aid in the study of drama- 
tization and stage settings. The films created enough in- 
terest on the campus to demand a special shotving for the 
student body. 

We Start a Ten Year Production Project 

With these experiences in production to our credit, we 
are now planning a series of films on the resources and 
industries of Arkansas. This series is to be in color and 
will include sound.

"Public Relations for Labor" Is 
Subject of Illinois' Filmstrlp 

♦ Lecture notes instead of a sound re- 
cording are provided for local adapta- 
tions of a new 40-frame fihnstrip from 
the University of Illinois which treats 
objectively the subject of the labor 
union and its potential as a commu- 
nity-builder. In Public Relations for 
Labor the subject is taken up objec- 
tively and in general terms so that it 
can be used by different labor groups. 

The notes, by Dorothy Dowell and 
Marguerite Keswick, are tied directly 
to the frames. If a discussion is to 
follow the showing, they advise that 
the kinds of questions should be 
worked out in advance. 

Starting with the premise that the 
local union is a part of the commu- 
nity, the filmstrip goes on to prove 
the fact and shows some of the proj- 
ects of the unions to win an under- 
standing of their purposes and to earn 
the cooperation of the citizenry. 
Among them are Labor Day parades. 

exhibits at county fairs, picnics, sports 
teams outfitted by union organiza- 
tions, labor publications, sponsored 
motion pictures, exchange of speakers, 
and finally through participation in 
local government.

Four Point Program to Widen Use 
of Tape Recordings Is Suggested 
♦ A four-point program to widen and 
improve the contributions of tape re- 
cordings and transcriptions to the 
classroom is recommended by E. R. 
Moses, Jr., director of radio, Eastern 
Illinois State College. Charleston, 111. 
Participating in a panel at the 21st 
Institute for Education by radio. Di- 
rector Moses said tape recordings 
should not be made a displacement for 
teachers but educators should be 
taught how to use the recorder by the 
state teachers colleges. He urged a 
flexible plan to provide tape recording 
libraries and the development of 
standard equipment for small school 
budgets, a project undertaken by the 
School Broadcast Conference but in- 
terrupted by the Korean war. 

With James K. Peterson of the Ball 
State Teachers College as chairman, 
the panel had as the other participants 
John Henderson of WBBA, Purdue 
Lniversitv, who spoke on what the 
teiicher-trainee should know about 
radio: and Charles Stamps of Murray 
State College, on the local radio sta- 
tion as a medium. 

W hen Henderson said schools would 
make a mistake if they sought to use 
radio as a substitute for teachers, 
Moses agreed that such an attempt 
with tape recordings w^ould invite un- 
imaginative teaching, the loss of re- 
gional programs and "sterility in radio 
programming." He noted that the use 
of the tape recorder has been charted 
in the Chicago public schools for ex- 
panded application, with study haU 
periods used bv monitors to obtain 
programs desired for study and criti- 

In some schools it may be feasible 
that the a-v aids division handle all 
records and tapes, in others the vari- 
ous departments may desire control 
of those that pertain to their indi- 
vidual fields, but in any event there 
should be working arrangements with 
recording centers "so that teachers 
may have access to tapes and records 
which will help supplement their 
course work."

N. Y. Film Council members about 
the American Heritage Project. 

American Heritage Project to 
Stimulate Local Discussion Forums 
->f Soundly backed by a $150,000 Ford 
Foundation grant, a nationwide pro- 
gram of conferences and discussions 
relating American historv to our con- 
temporary problems and affairs has 
been launched by the American Li- 
brar\ Association. The American Heri- 
tage Project, as it is known, is admin- 
istered h\ Mrs. Grace Stevenson. 

First Fall Meeting oj the New York 
memhrrs irho heard about ALA's Anu 

sccretar\ of the AEA"s Adult Educa- 
tion Board and well known to the 
audio-visual field for her pioneering 
work in adult film programs at the 
Seattle Public Library. 

Mrs. Stevenson and John M. Cory, 
Chief of the Circulating Division of 
the New York Public Library, de- 
scribed the new project to members 
of the New York Film Council at its 
first fall meeting in October. Model 
for the program is said to be a series 
of programs organized by Mrs. Mil- 
dred Mathews who heads the Adult 
Education Program of the New York 
Library. Her programs, planned on a 
local level, were chosen by the Ford 
Foundation as the model for this na- 
lionuide experiment. 

Operating through discussion groups 
developed by public libraries in each 
community, the jjurposc of this pro- 
gram is to encourage citizens to draw^ 
upon lessons learned by our fore- 
fathers in former times of stress and 
to applv these basic principles of 
Americanism to our current thinking. 
Both films and books will be used in 
these discussions. 

A considerable part of the Ford 
grant has been specifically earmarked

Preview: "The Hard Core" 

The Hard Core— 13 Minutes. B & W- 
Sound. Produced by the United 
Nations Office of Public Informa- 
tion for the International Refugee 
Organization. Written by Patricia 
Zegart. Photographed and directed 
by Arthur Zegart. Narrated by Wal- 
ter Abel. 
• This is the story of a special core 
of people who live in DP camps — the 
hard core — the old, the crippled, the 
sick, the blind — the people who are 
not wanted. But IRO has found homes 
for a million in the three years of its 
operation. In the DP camp they are 
rehabilitated; they learn, so far as 
it is possible, to be whole again. They 
learn to walk again; they learn to 
work again. 

With their rehabilitation IRO has 
persuaded some nations to take them 
in. Netherlands sends a mission to see 
and invite some. Israel takes others. 
France extends a warm hand to some 
lonely aged. Denmark welcomes some 
aged and infirm, arranges for the cure 
of others with TB. takes children. 
Norway sends a special plane for the 
blind and their families; makes ar- 
rangements for surgery to give the 
blind new sight. 

But thousands have been left be- 
hind — the aged, the handicapped, the 
blind, the children. Will they be for- 
gotten, the film asks? Will there yet 
be time before IRO closes its books? 
This story has been emotionalized 
to the point of being maudlin. The 
voice of the narrator and the urgent 
pacing of the delivery become acces- 
sories to this fact. 

Magic Formula: Eciucalioiial TV 


THE TESTIMONY of Joseph James 
McPherson, executive secretary of 
the Department of Audio-Visual In- 
struction of the National Education 
Association, before the Federal Com- 
munications Commission where he ap- 
peared as a supporting witness on 
behalf of educational television facili- 
ties makes interesting reading. We re- 
print directly from the statement of 
the Joint Committee on Educational 
Telc\ ision: 

"The development of educational 
television will greatly increase the 
over-all effectiveness with which 
schools can make use of audio- visual 
learning materials. Today in a school 
system of the size of Los Angeles it 
would require probably 150 prints of 
one educational film to meet ade- 
quately the needs of the teachers that 
might be teaching a definite subject at 
a definite time of the year. Prints, 
just a one-reel black and white sound 
film, cost about S45. Multiply that by 
12,000 different subjects that the Los 
Angeles schools have. Multiply it 
again by the number of subjects that 
are multiple-reel subjects, and you see 
it runs into astronomical figures. The 
expense is too great." 

Let's Give Up the Ship 

We have the word of this "expert"' 
that we can't win. Although the audio- 
visual field is somehow managing to 
acquire new subjects each year and to 
use them as they should be used within 
the classrooms of our schools, as they 
are needed, its all wrong. What we 

really need is just one television sta- 
tion in Los Angeles (or several) and 
super-programmers to feed a few thou- 
sand classroom t.v. receivers. These 
cost about the same as light-weight 
16nmi sound projectors, of course, but 
nobody has to thread them up. You 
just turn the switch and there it is! 

Has TV a Classroom Future? 

Obviously Mr. McPherson thinks 
television has a classroom future. He 
im|)lies it, he testified in favor of it, 
he has hterally abandoned all hope for 
the economic survival of any direct 
16mm projection of classroom films. 
"The expense is too great," he says. 

There is serious and real conflict in 
these views. McPherson's encourage- 
ment of million-dollar budget raids for 
educational t.v. networks is directly 
contrary to present long-range, com- 
mon-sense legislative aid programs for 
audio-visual service on state and local 
levels. "You don't need it." the tele- 
visers say. "The expense is too great" 
says Mr. McPherson. 

Let's Have a Frank Statement 
See & Hear is dedicated to our 
present logical course of continued de- 
velopment of specific classroom mate- 
rials for specific needs. It challenges 
the DA\ I secretary to ami)lify. clarify, 
or retract his FCC testimony which 
seems to contradict his continued sup- 
port of these aims. His office is sup- 
ported financially by those who share 
our beliefs. In fairness to them he 
should state his position. 


These, our youngsters, in the classrooms of America 
are the real beneficiaries of audio-visual aids.

Yardsticks for Educational Video: 

Can Classroom TV 
Follow These Proven 
Audio -Visual Principles? 

• hy J. J. Jeliring. Assistant Professor 
Cornell Lniversity 

TWO VIDEO VIEWPOINTS: above the to»er of WOI-TV, first 
educational telecasler at Iowa Stale College. Below: Walt's 
Workshop is a regular commercial feature of NBC's Chicago 
outlet WNBQ and typical of educational fare which such fa- 
cilities can provide through their existing facilities. 

Dl RI\G the past few decades, educators have been 
experimenting with the proper methods of using 
audio-visual materials in the classroom. Out of 
these experiments certain basic principles have evolved 
which have been found to be important in the most effec- 
tive use of audio-visual materials in a classroom situation. 
Presently we are confronted with the likelihood of using 
educational television in the classroom as a teaching tool. 
This raises some problems when it is considered in the 
light of what has been discovered by educators to be the 
most effective method of using audio-visual instructional 
materials in a classroom situation. It might be well to out- 
line some of the problems which must be solved before 
educational television can be used in the classroom with 
the same effectiveness as we are presently using audio- 
visual materials. 

How AI)oiit Previewing and Follow-Up? 

The first problem to consider is that of teacher previetv 
and preparation. In the effective use of films in the class- 
room, any teacher soon discovers that the preview and 
preparation are perhaps the most important steps in using 
audio-visual materials effectively. It does not take a teacher 
verv long to learn the folly of going into the classroom and 
attempting to teach with a film which has not first been 
seen and carefully analyzed. A teacher may show films 
without preview but the chances are there will be much 
more entertainment than education taking place in that 
classroom. No teacher would think of taking a textbook 
which he had never seen before, into the classroom and 
expect to teach from it effectively. In this respect, the use 
of educational television poses a real question. Can a sub- 
stitute be found for the teacher pre\ iew which is neces- 
sary for the effective educational use of audio-visual 
materials ? 

The second problem is the matter of foUou-up. Experi- 
ence indicates that in certain types of audio-visual mate- 
rials, the follow-up is important if educational goals are 
to be attained. It is common practice now to use the follow- 
up principle with the use of audio-visual materials. Here 
again it is imperative that the teacher give time and study 
to the audio-visual item in order to plan an effective fol- 

To have an effective folloAv-up of a television program 
immediately after viewing it in the classroom by both stu- 
dents and teacher, is unlikely because of lack of previous 
planning. Preferably the teacher should be given some 
opportunity to prepare the proper kind of follow-up and 
not be expected to conduct a follow-up on the spur of the 
moment immediately after seeing the program. Can some 
effective method be found to provide for teacher follow- 
up of educational television presentations? 

Repetition and Review Are Important 

The problem of repetition. As has been pointed out 
previously, the matter of repeating the presentation is an 
important principle in the use of audio-visual materials 
in some cases. This is especially true in the presentation 
of information and skill-training types of materials. In 
television how can we provide for having groups see the 
material twice where the teacher has tested and found 
that all the information or skill has not been properly 

The problem of change of pace in using audio-visual 
materials. Many times in using audio-visual materials, 


teachers find it advantageous to suit the pace of ilie mate- 
rial to the group. This is especially true of fihnslrips hut 
it may also be true of movies where it is often found de- 
sirable to stop the projector on a particular frame or to 
turn off the projector after a particular setjuence for a dis- 
cussion, before proceeding to the next sequence. How can 
television he adopted to the cliange of pace iieccssar\ for 
adequate use of the material? 

Can Educational T.V. Provide Programs';' 
The prohlem of Icniilln and co.siIy prcpuration. yVudio- 
visual materials of educational significance which have 
been produced to date in the form of sound motion picture 
films are very expensive and ha\e taken a great deal of 
time and effort. The average 15-ininute educational sound 
motion picture may cost from .S10,000-S30,000 to produce, 
and a considerable amount of time and effort of subject 
matter specialists must be devoted to making the finished 
product educationally acceptable. To produce live tele- 
vision shows of comparable quality would be costly in 
terms of time of subject matter area specialists and pro- 
ducers. Unless a kinescope recording was made of the 
show (that is a motion picture film) it could be used only 
once. The question here is can we afford the cost of high 
quality live television educational shows? 

The problem of scheduling. In our formal education 
system, television faces the same problem that radio has 
faced to date. For manv years now the established educa- 
tional radio networks have been struggling with this prob- 
lem and in most cases have met with very limited success. 
One of the most important things for the teacher is to 
attempt to adapt the audio-visual material to the class 
schedule. To use audio-visual materials they must be avail- 
able on the day and at the hours they are needed. To have 
even a majoritv of the teachers in any state teaching a 
certain subject at a certain time on a certain day. so that 
they can have a television program, seems to be impossible 
of achievement. 

The Trend Is Toward Sju'cific Materials 

There are other problems also which concern the pro- 
duction of the material for television rather than their use 
in the classroom. We must also find ways in which we can 
encourage student participation in audio-visual materials. 
We must tailor our educational audio-visual programs for 
more specific groups and not make them for large mass 

The question of the use of television in the classroom is 
now in the hands of the educational leaders of the country. 
They must decide upon the expenditure of large sums of 
money for this purpose. Before any such expenditures are 
made, it would seem desirable to conduct extensive experi- 
ments to determine the effectiveness of classroom educa- 
tional television as compared w ith the methods of classroom 
audio-visual instruction currently in use. 

Such research studies must be carried on by competent 
research people in the area of educational psycholog)", pref- 
erably in a University currently engaged in research in 
this field. Such research should be completed prior to the 
establishment of extensive educational television programs 
in the school systems. 

Educational leaders would do well to beware of so called 
research, presented in the form of teacher interviews on 
the use and effectiveness of television programs in the 
classrooms, opinions of experts, etc. Whereas these may 

serve their purpose they should not he considered as a sub- 
stitute for a substantial research j)rogram conducted by 
qualified university experts in educational psychology. 
Only through a thorough study of this matter can we come 
to the final ansuer of the (|uestioii.

Television Experiment 
in Salt Lake City 

by Ellaiuao Clark* 

Ml Cll has been predicted for television and its place 
ill modern education. Much also has been said 
about education's taking advantage of the oppor- 
tunities afforded by television — opportunities which are 
two-fold: 111 the bringing of highly educational televised 
programs to the classrooms and ( 2 I the use of television 
as a means of showing the piiiilir what is going on in the 

Educators and parents of Salt Lake City have watched 
with interest three different kinds of televised programs, 
using public school students, that have been in progress 
since September 1919. The three programs differed .in 
content but all had many educational values for the par- 
ticipating students from seven junior and throe senior 
high schools of the city. 

One televised half-hour wcekh program utilized a series 
of assembly programs from a junior high school. The 
programs were original dramatizations of the life and 
culture of neighboring countries. Dialogue, dances, songs 
and instrumental numbers were woven into the program. 
Beautiful costumes and attractive stage properties added

to the presentations. Approximately 100 students took 
part in these televised programs and it was a profitable 
educational experience for them. '"Its a Date" and "Music 
Masters of Tomorrow" presented students of secondary 
schools in televised talent programs. These programs 
were planned in advance by a joint committee consisting 
of tele\-ision station representation and school people. 

Representatives from the television station auditioned 
the numbers at the schools, usually as the students were 
performing for an assembly. Prior to the audition stu- 
dents filled out blanks giving name, age, school, grade, 
type of number, name of selection, years of study, and 
■ ambitions. This information was of value in setting up 
the final show. 

Wide Range of Student Talent Noted 

In an attempt to balance each program a variety of 
numbers was used: vocal numbers included solos and en- 
sembles — a brother and sister having near perfect pitch 
demonstrated it — a Negro girl sang spirituals; instru- 
mental numbers were of wide variety with piano duo and 
solos, violin and saxophone presentations: dance numbers 
included ballet, toe, and a beautiful and near-professional 
interpretative dance by a junior high school girl: novelty 
numbers included the wide variety of interests one might 
expect to find among young people of high school age; 
impersonations and mimicry were especially entertaining. 
The poise of these students and the ease with which they 
performed before the television cameras amazed adults 
working with them. 

It is true that the talents and interests of students pre- 
sented in the programs described were not the result of 
classroom training, but we know the modern school recog- 
nizes and encourages student interests and abilities and 
affords its students opportunities to display these interests 
and talents wherever possible. In our opinion the oppor- 
tunity presented by the television programs to do this very 
thing has been well worth the time and energy put into 
the project. 

What of the future? \^Tiat did we learn from these 
first simple beginnings? We saw potentialities for tele- 
vised programs which are limitless and we are looking 
ahead and can see much progress in showing the school 
and the classroom to the public. 

If we are going to show our students and our schools 
to the viewing public we should do it through school ac- 

tivities. We want to present the educational values of our 
schools. We won't look for a finished performance — the 
thing we should not and could not give in the light of 
children's maturity, interests, and well-being. That will 
mean that schools will maintain control of the programs. 

School Activities Suggest TV Programs 
There is no limit to the kinds of school activities that 
lend themselves to televised presentations: for instance, 
the manual arts division could show the making of jewelry, 
working with plastics, tooling leather. Youngsters could 
present a series of demonstrations explaining scientific 
principles. Explanations and discussions of natural ob- 
jects might include collections of insects, butterflies, rocks 
by intermediate and secondary students. Charts and dia- 
grams dealing with astronomy could serve as the subject 
for programs. The Social Sciences could contribute a 
wealth of classroom activities for television such as drama- 
tizations of great events of history, discussion of pictorial 
interpretation of the "Bill of Rights," democracy and 
what it means, and so forth. Performing pets, hobbies, 
dramatization, puppet shows in which children handling 
the puppets as well as the puppets themselves are shown, 
would make interesting televised programs. 

The health, music, and art departments, the school 
library, all have great possibilities for excellent television 

Physical Factors in TV Programming 

From our observation of television programs we know 
a technique of handling the program will need to be worked 
out so that the children talk to the viewer about the activity 
and have the center of the screen, keeping the teacher or 
the other adult interviewer out of the picture. 

We know that time schedules become a factor to be con- 
sidered. Performers and the viewing public are often 
disturbed by the constant rush and push of television 
shows. School people and television workers will need to 
work on this problem to reduce to a minimum the feeling 
of push and rush. 

We know also that schools will need to employ specially 
skilled persons who know children and the schools and 
the public and to be responsible for organizing such pro- 
grams. It will be a full time job. 

Much is said today about the school and public rela- 
tions. Surely television is now a most powerful medium 
in this respect. The schools cannot afford to pass up this 
remarkable opportunity for taking the classroom to the 
public so that all may see and understand better the work 
of the school. •

We Make a Picture! 


State an understanding of the physical characteristics of 
the state and their relationships to the resources and in- 
dustries of the state. Following this film, we plan to de- 
velop otlier films on the various industries of the state. 
This is an area of instructional materials that we feel 
needs considerable attention locally and one in which 
commercial producers can rarely afford to participate. 

Other Campus Productions Are Planned 

At present we are collecting scenes that are seasonable 
in nature. For instance the fall of the year is the season 
of greatest danger of forest fires. A recent field trip 
with a class through a state forest gave us valuable footage 
of a demonstration of the methods of detecting and fight- 
ing a forest fire. The rangers actually started a forest fire 
and employed their actual technique in putting it out. The 
loss of footage in editing these scenes is approximately 
10% which is low- as compared to our earlier experiences. 
Other scenes will be shot in the spring when the same 
geography class will visit the forest nurserv and a paper 

We do not expect to complete the first film before the 
end of 19.51. Many of the industries have seasonal activi- 
ties, and we will have to catch them at such times when 
their activities are prominent. The entire series will prob- 
ablv take ten years to complete as we are not planning to 
devote full time to production. 

Today our equipment includes a Cine Special with an 
extra magazine, a Junior Professional Tripod with pan 
and gear head, an exposure meter, and a collection of flood 
lights. We do not plan to add sound equipment because 
of the expense. 

We Do What We Can Do Best! 

We are confining our production to those areas where 
materials are not available from commercial sources or are 
too limited in extent for our purposes. We believe the 
cost of production, which is not excessive, is well justified 
because of the wide use here that we can already see will 
be made of the films. Teachers over the state who have 
used these films have definitely profited from an enriched 
teaching program. This has led them to use other teach- 
ing materials to provide the desirable experiences for their 
pupils. We are certain our local productions are helping 
to expand the general utilization of teaching materials in 
the state. Such utilization is our primary objective. •

The "'Tellaviewers" 

l.y Robert D. MacCurdy 
Teacher of Biology-. ^ atertown. Mass. H.S. 

RESTORED for today's educational use, with a rec- 
reational flair, is the simple, versatile and useful 
tool of what perhaps had become a lost profession 
— the "magic lantern" lecturer. Their modern protagon- 
ists are the "Tellaviewers." 

Two generations ago, before the movies, radio and tele- 
\'ision claimed our time and attention, our grandparents 
used to attend "magic lantern" illustrated lectures. They 
were both recreational and educational. With the passing 
of those days, the lantern slide has been often overlooked 
as a recreational device. Now. the rapid growth of the 
audio-visual technique in education has turned the light 
of re-examination upon this tool. Beyond the use of the 
machine as a slide projector, little has been done to ex- 
tend its application to its maximum potential. 

A Lo:^l Art 1? Revived to Serve 

The author has made an attempt to revive the lost art 
of the lantern slide lecturer. Several of his more promis- 
ing students were offered the opportunity of participating 
in the program. They were provided with sets of lantern 
slides, or made their own. on such subjects as botany, 
domesticated animals, snakes, and prehistoric man. 

The students then set about the task of compiling their 
own set of lecture cards to accompany and explain the 
slides. After the lecture cards had been prepared and 
correlated with the slides, the students searched through 
various anthologies to find anecdotes relative to the lecture 
material and slides. This material was also recorded on 
lecture cards and svTichronized with the slides. 

Practice Makes for Perfect Programs 

Students then began to jiractice using the projection 
apparatus, the slides, the set of lecture cards and anecdotes, 
and the hat pin pointer. 

Skill is necessary to handle smoothly this collection of 
items without noise, confusion, or a disarray of cards and 
slides. Finally, the student practiced reading the cards in 
the darkened projection room, stressing speech qualities 


"Measuring" (one of the Cooking 
film series described beloiv). 

IT would be strange indeed if the 
home economics teacher could 
view tlie endless parade of new 
films on food preparation without some 
bewilderment. In one of the graduate 
courses at New York University a few 
of them were evaluated recently and 
suggestions offered for their use. Cook- 
ing Terms, Cooking Measurement, and 
Cooking: Planning, Buying Food, Why 
Budget and Kitchen Safety, were in 
the list.* 

The opinion prevailed that all of 
the list could be used to introduce a 
unit, to summarize a unit or area of 
learning, or to evaluate the present 
knowledge of the student. And, the 
films are useful with high school, col- 
lege, or adult groups. Three of the 
films were selected for detailed anal- 



ig,. ii/„.j. J I high school 
teacher found this film valuable for a 
beginning class in foods to promote a 
clearer understanding of terminology. 
Showing of the film was followed by 
demonstrations by the teacher or in 
some instances, students when the 
terms were encountered later in actual 

A college class in experimental cook- 
ery found the film challenging in an 
examination of terminology in food 
preparation. Definitions presented in 
the film were compared with thbse 
from other sources. In some instances, 
students formulated improved defini- 
tions. Several students studied the 
origin of definitions. Others analyzed 
the practical aspects of definitions for 
accuracy and clarity. 

In another instance, an advanced 
high school class examined the terms 
for scientific accuracy and for their 
practical aspects. Questions were

The Constructive Use 
of Home Economics Films

raised, as for example, about the ad- 
visability of testing jelly with a wooden 
spoon, the high temperature for scald- 
ing milk, the pouring of batter into 
egg whites, placing a roast with the 
meat side up in a pan, and the method 
employed for dredging. The flexibil- 
ity of definitions was examined, too, 
especially in the light of equipment, 
the individuals concerned, and the sit- 
uations involved. 

Film Used for Examination 

Since many terms are outlined in 
the film, a college teacher of an in- 
troductory foods class used the film 
in a final examination of the course. 
She asked students to evaluate each 
term critically and to make any 
changes they might deem necessary. 
The approach was novel and proved 
to be more than interesting to the 
students. A word of advice: sufficient 
light should be provided in the room 
for students to write. 

Buying Food. A college teacher in 
a consumei education course found 
this film exj>ressly helpful in present- 

"Planning" is another of the useful

ing points to consider in the buying 
of food. A young married man in 
the class became so interested in the 
suggestions offered that he made a 
careful examination of his own prac- 
tices. Considerable money was saved 
when he and his wife discontinued 
buying all of their food at a local 
delicatessen and launched upon a defi- 
nite budget and plan. 

One of the graduate students found 
the film valuable in her work with 
adult groups of low income status. In- 
formation contained in the film had 
to be adapted and supplemented at 
certain points. For example, other 
types of milk which may be purchased 
were added. The film impressed many 
of the homemakeis to volunteer infor- 
mation from their own experiences. 

In a home management unit in a 
high school class the fibn was used as 
a point of departure in examining 
food-buying practices in general. Since 
only a super market is indicated in 
the film, class committees investigated 
other types of markets, studied food 
budgets and buying practices of vari- 
ous types of families, and summarized 
them in some overall suggestions for 
improved familv buying. 

Safely Is a Key Problem 

Kitchen Safety. A college teacher 
in reporting on the use of this filih 
savs that discussion which followed 
the viewing of the film lead to an ex- 
amination of many other types of 
experiences. Several students discussed 
safety practices with their families. 
Another student reported that her 
family examined tlie layout of the 
kitchen in her home, and as a result, 
a number of changes were made to 
promole safetv. In another discussion, 
a family decided that a kitchen ste])- 
ladder was a '"must" in their home. 

In a high school home economics 
class, the film met with such favor that 
a high school assembly program was 
built around it. This, in turn, proved 



to be the incentive for an all-high 
school program on safety. 

A home demonstration agent, in re- 
lating her experiences with tlie film, 
said that one outstanding by-|)roduct 
was the planning of safety exhibits for 
the county fair. In addition, a more 
diligent examination of safety prac- 
tices occurred in main liomcs. 

Use Films for a I'lirposr 
Summary. A n u in b e r of points 
worthy of note were raised by this 
group of graduate students. In the 
use of films of this type, it is impor- 
tant that the films be used for some 
specific purpose other than mere en- 
tertainment. The success of the use 
of a film depends largely upon the 
extent tt> which the audience is reached 
tlirough it. In other words, were ideas 
clarified, were behaviors changed, and 
did some kind of beneficial action re- 
sult? Furthermore, a teacher should 
help her group to examine a fibn 
critically, not to accept all informa- 
tion wholeheartedly, but to examine 
it with a view to accuracy, clarity, and 
practicability. A film must not be 
allowed to stand by itself. It must be 
an integral part of the learning process. 

"Kitchen Safety" provokes plenty of 
valuable classroom tlisriissioii.

Realistic Approach on International 
Scene Goal of Classroom Producer 

"♦f A realistic approach to subject 
matter in the production of motion 
pictures of other lands for use in edu- 
cation is the objective of a new or- 
ganization. World Neighbor Films, 
P.O. Box 1.527. Santa Barbara, Calif. 

Pre-production conferences with 
educators in California pointed up the 
fallacies of the all too frequent roman- 
tic and traveloguish treatment of the 
life and customs of other peoples, re- 
sulting in distortion to the student by 
emphasis on the spectacular. Hence 
World Neighbor Films, writes Clark 
V. Blocher, has taken the opposite tack 
ond is giving first attention to the 
similarities to life in the United States. 

The first production, on the earth 
and what it grows, is Northwestern 
Mexico (11 min., sound and color, 
S85). The film has been "classroom 
tested" for use in social studies courses 
and is pertinent to discussion of topics 
in the fields of geography, world af- 
fairs, land reclamation, the machine 
age and of course Mexican culture. 
Brought out are three aspects of the 
normal life of the area: the irrigation 
farmer's adaptation to his environ- 
ment, the cotton ginning process and 

liic derivation of hemp. Scenes were 
shot in Chihuahua and Sinaloa states 
last December. Maps provide an addi- 
tional educational aid. Tractor, hay 
baler, harvester combine and cotton 
gin demonstrate the modern farming 
methods employed. A teacher's guide, 
with narration, carries out the theme 
of realism.

Are You Using the Overhead Projector? 

Growing Popularity Is Based on Useful Service in the Classroom 


comment the head of a department of educa- 
tion made recently to a querv- about the use of 
the overhead projector. Later on, when showing a visitor 
the department's audio visual equipment, he pointed out 
a dust covered projector "of some sort" at the bottom of 
a closet. 

You guessed it. The forgotten projector was one of 
the newer audio visual aids to learning — an overhead 

Most of the te.Ktbooks and other publications in the 
field either completely ignore this newer device, comment 
adversely, or pass it off lightly while giving much space 
to slide projectors. 

Those of us who have used the projector find it hard 
to understand this lethargy. For the so-called overhead 
projector is a machine that will do everything that the 
old standby 3^ x 4 slide projector will do. plus much 
more. Educators who have used it in the fields of insur- 
ance, religion, publishing, and the military, as well as in 
the various levels of public education, have expressed 
amazed enthusiasm at its effectiveness. 

Here Are Its Principal Advantages 

Let us briefly list some of the factors which make this 
form of "lecture desk lantern" so useful. 

It operates in daylight conditions. Because it need be 
only about seven feet away to fill the classroom screen, 
there is not the usual amount of light loss. 

The operator faces the class. 

As the teacher points to the material in front of her. 
she can readily see if the pupils are following along by 
taking notes, making sketches, or giving full attention. 

The machine is simply operated. 

One switch turns on the projector. 

One easily turned knob focuses it. 

One final knob adjusts the speed of the cooling fan. 

Younger children can make materials for projection. 

Since a slide of about seven inches on a side may be 
projected, the smaller children will have the large area 

to work on that their less finely developed muscles re- 
quire. Since no darkening of the room is required, since 
a flick of the switch sets the prefocused machine in oper- 
ation, and since no screen is really necessary, the children 
can project their own pictures for evaluation and 

It is ideal for one room schools and multiple-activity 

An individual or a group can be off in one corner of 
a room projecting their own materials without interfe-ring 
with the other activities. 

It's Easy to Make Your Own Materials 

Materials are easily constructed and filed and are non- 
breakable (with the exception of prepared 3^ x 4 glass 
slides which may be used on occasion). 

Construction: Drafting or special plastics inks may be 
penned or brushed onto the clear varieties while colored 
pencils and slide crayons may be used on the "frosted" 
types. Materials that ordinarily have to be condensed may 
be traced full size from books and other sources. Much 
more typewritten or lettered material may be projected 
at once, thus making fe\\er breaks in continuity. 

Filing: Ordinary letter filing folders provide an excel- 
lent device in which to store, arrange and catalog material. 

Non-breakable quality: It is not necessary to put photo- 
graphic, typewritten, drawn or other similar materials on 
or between glass. L^nbreakable. nonbuming plastics of 
cellophane thickness or greater, in single or multiple 
layers, may be utilized. 

SYi X 4 and 2 .v 2 slides may be projected without 
holders or slide carriers. 

The slides are placed down on the projecting surface 
as they would ordinarily be viewed (no need to get them 
upside down). In a darkened room with the projector 
about 15 feet from the screen, several 2x2 slides may be 
projected at one time for purposes of comparison. 

Overlays a Valuable Asset in Many Courses 

The overhead projector allows for the ready use of 
overlays. In this it is unique among projecting devices. 

In all fields, such as mathematics, art, industrial arts, 
and science, where step-by-step procedures need illustra- 
tion, this technique is peculiarly adapted. 

The first step (or the given material in geometry, for 
instance) may be flashed on the screen and explained, 
then the next step thumbed into position in a different 
color, and so on until the completed problem, project, or 
process is all built up before the pupils' eyes. 

In classes like English, industrial arts, biology, and 
chemistry, where objects (sentence elements in the case 
of English) have to be labeled, the overlay is an ideal 

Lessons may be traced on a projected basic material 
without disturbing the original material for use with the

the modern overhead equipment. Other overhead-type projec- 
tors are avaihihle from Keystone ^ iew and Visiialcast. 


next class. The lesson is traced on a piece of rolled plas- 
tic damped over the original material. 

The same outline map may be used as a base to overlay 
various colored areas indicating various physical, political, 
economic, or other features. 

Graphs, writing lessons, art techniques, and other illus- 
trative material may be demonstrated in the same man- 
ner. .AH materials are available for the next lesson 
without erasing or redoing. 

Many other techniques, methods and uses of the over- 
head projector are in operation now. and more will be 
de%-eloped by the versatile American teacher. Those uses 
listed here should ser\'e to indicate the wide possibilities 
inherent in the overhead projection field. 

In conclusion, overhead projection is not a "lazy man's 
teaching crutch" but a unique, valuable aid to doing a 
better job of helping the learner. Much work is necessary 
in preparing materials for this projection (until somebody 
does for this machine what filmstrip producers are doing 
for the owners of filmstrip projectors) . But it is work 
that pays rich dividends for both teacher and pupil. 

Film Librarians Give Answers to 
Typical Management Situations 

From Dade County, Florida 

♦ iOne problem isi keeping outside organizations happy in 
spite of the fact thai you do not allow them to use the 
facilities, uhen such use would be "the stratc that breaks 
the cameTs back," but which would also be a really valuable 
service to them. The only sate rule is to say "no" to 
El'ERiOME, and then go out of your way to help them 
find the material they want from some other source. I believe 
such a course actually builds friendship, if it is handled 
firmly, consistently, and kindly. 

From Frederick, Oklahoma 

♦ Some schools want to use the films for entertainment, 
instead of using them for educational purposes. However, 
we are eliminating this to a great extent. Teaching the 
proper use of the films has been our greatest problem. 

From Erie, Pennsylvania 

♦ Too few teachers plan ahead to take advantage of advance 
bookings. They usually call at the last minute for material 
that has been previously booked — and regard themselves as 
THE user. 

From L\-nchburg, Virginia 

♦ First of all, have someone in charge who is interested, has 
been a teacher, and knows the teachers' needs. One who is 
tactful in handling teachers, tireless in his efforts. He must 
be a person who can sell the program to the public as 
well as to staff members. 

It is an expensive program, and the person in charge must 
have a substantial budget in order to succeed. Sew films 
should be added continuously. .Make all materials available 
to teachers without too much effort on their part because 
teachers are busy people. 

From Louisville (Jefferson Coimtv), Kentucky 

♦ Only 16 mm films are circulated from our library. It has 
been my experience and that of others in the field that the 
circulation of records, transcriptions and filmstrips is ex- 
tremely difficult, resulting in high loss from damage and 
breakage and since the cost of these aids is relatively low, 
we have adopted a policy of building libraries of these ma- 
terials within the individual schools. . . . Some of our schools 
have filmstrip libraries of two to five hundred filmstrips and 
similar libraries of recordings.

Title: The Steps of Age, 25 min.. 16sd; 

produced by Film Document^. 
* First of six in a Mental Health Fibn 
Board Series on Emotions of Evervdav 
Living, The Steps of Age is a homespun 
story of the problems of the aging, a sub- 
ject which is receiving increasing atten- 
tion in the field of medicine and psychi- 
atry, and on the screen. 

The tlieme may have been predicated 
upon the thought expressed by the elderly 
central character who does the con- 
tinuity narrative, in her words that "grow- 
ing old is .«o much easier if someone loves 
you and understands you." It also could 
have been directed toward the idea that 
a retired worker who spends all his wak- 
ing hours "heating himself" at checkers- 
solitaire is defeating his happiness. 

Both themes are doubtlesslv sound psy- 
chiatry, and probably generally accepted 
by the laity, but the resultant scattering 
of interest, complicated bv the "fade- 
backs" of retrospect, stopped the results 
short of potentialities for general audience. 
Elements of the story development in- 
clude the widowed mother's moving in 
with daughter and family, the protests of 
interference when Gram picks up the wail- 
ing baby during a noisy costume party, 
her fruitless efforts to find a job when she 
feels she is not wanted. .\ dramatic bit is

Grade school yoiiiigstera get acquainted with Daisy May. 

AS the first of four truck units completes day-to-day 
visits among the schools of Los Angeles and carries 
its cargo of calves and a cow, the children often 
report as they return to their homes, "Daisy May came to 
our school today." "Daisy May" is the name of the cow. 

For the child who studies from pre-primers, which carry 
the picture of a dog or a cat on one page and a cow on 
the adjoining, both of about the same size, it is little 
wonder that wide stares, cries of amazement and squeals 
of recognition mean that first and second-grade children 
for the first time in their lives have become acquainted 
with the reality of a cow and her calves. 

Currently four mobile units are visiting the schools of 
Los Angeles to carry information about farms and rural 
life to the children of the city schools. The four units 
are as follows: 

(1) The Dairy Unit — This was the first unit put into 
operation. It has a cow and a calf, all the cows being 
named "Daisy May." Everyone just says, "Has Daisy- 
May been to your school?" The animals are supplied by 
two or three of the large dairies in this area. One cow 
will be on the truck for probably two weeks, and then 
another dairy will lend another cow and some calves. The 
calves are somewhat of a problem as they grow very fast. 

Supplies also are carried on the dairy truck, such as 
cream for making butter and cottage cheese. These sup- 
plies are purchased by the city schools at a reduced rate. 
When the unit goes to a school, it stays all morning. The 
presentation is made by the teacher who is in charge of

the truck and always is in charge when the truck is at the 
school. These people are regular certificate-holding teach- 
ers from our school system, paid by the school system. 

(2) Poultry and Livestock Unit — Special stock of 
chickens, turkeys, a goat, a rabbit, a lamb, and a pig. 

(3) Agriculture — ^Science Exhibits — Consisting of 
samples of grain, soil, plants, etc. 

(4) California Wild Life — Living wild animals as 
well as mounted specimens, birds, etc. 

We believe the mobile units are very worthwhile. In 
the first place, the mobile dairy unit was developed be- 
cause so many of our children never had seen a live cow; 
they had no idea whatever of its size, or anything else 
about it. Most of our children study the dairy in the first 
or second grade, but it is not possible for us to take all 
the children to the dairies in this area. So we bring a live 
exhibit to the school. The children see the cow being 
milked; they see butter being made, and they are told 
about the other products made from milk. They get to 
pat the cow and the calf, and learn about the food the 
animals eat. The school is notified a long time ahead and 
so is prepared when the truck arrives. 

The unit of California \^ ild Life helps our children 
appreciate the natural things around them and in our 
neighboring foothills. \^'e have many children who never 
have been to the mountains, or the seashore, although that 
is hard to believe. This is one wav to bring reality to 
them and, we hope, give them some appreciation of nature 
and wild life. •

Picture Story: ''Williamsburg Restored 



Vhlin WIKKICAN vvliu iherisilics the liadilions and 
(•\aiii|)li-- ul oui founding fathers will appreciate the 
aiillii'iilic interest of Williainsburii Restoied, new docunien- 
tar\ film in color on the history and restoration of this 
significant colonial capilol city. 

Its 44 minutes of screen time cover the historic actions 
lit the loth centurx through to a present day detailing of 
ihr restoration work (hat has been under\va\ in Colonial 
Williariishurg for a (juarter century. Julien Brjan and the 
International Film Foundation were the producers. A new 
Film Distribution Section has been set up at Colonial 
Williamsburg to handle the sale and rental of prints of 
lliis and the earlier j)i(ture Eiu:liteeiilli-Ccnliir\ Ijje in 
II illiaiiisbur^, I irj^inia. 

\ii introductory sequence in Restored re-enacts a his- 
toric day in May. 1774. This is the festive season "Pub- 
lick Times" when events of social and political importance 

take |ila(c in Virginia's lolnnial icnti-r. llie arri\ai of a 
post rider during a session of the \sseini>l\ brings news 
of the closing of port of Boston b\ the Hrilish. it is the 
eve of the Rev ')lulioii. From this setting of the Williams- 
burg of 1774 the film turns lo the ]920's. 

Williamsburgs star had set and the once-proud center 
of colonial life was neglected until the idea of Colonial 
Williamsburg and the restoration was taken up. The pains- 
taking work of research and restoration which began in 
1928 is detailed in extremely thorough and fascinating 
scenes. History lives again and again as the research 
material from which the buildings and tlieir contents so 
faitlifnIK reconstructed i> brought lo the screen. There 
is. finally, the t<iwii as it is today for visitors to enjoy . . . 
breathing the spirit which lives again "in a new time of 
crisis, binding together the ])eoples of llie free world 
todav." A film in the American tradition. •

Fan action of the Beseler 
only holds copy flat during 
projection, but keeps inte- 
rior of the projector unus- 
ually cool. 

All copy is held absolutely flat on the 
VACUMATIC PLATEN of this ultra-modern 
Beseler VU-LYTE during projection, through 
suction created by a special fan. 

There is no need to spend time pasting 
and mounting copy — or inserting copy into holders. 
You simply introduce your copy onto the platen, 
and there it "stays put" without curl or flutter. 

As you handle the superb new VU-LYTE, 
you'll appreciate the exceptional advantages of 
this VACUMATIC PLATEN. It's one of the 
exclusive Beseler developments that make the 
VU-LYTE the most modern and most versatile 
of visual teaching tools. 

Yes, Beseler explored every line in bringing 
you a projector that gives top-notch results with 
maximum ease and economy of operation. 
For instance: 

1. YOU CAN use the VU-LYTE in a partiolly- 
lighted room. Total darkness is unneces- 
sary in order to obtain clear, sharp images 
and brilliant colors — becouse VU-LYTE pro- 
vides extra illumination. 

2 YOU CAN feed mixed or continuous copy 
through smoothly, without light flashes, 
by means of the Beseler fEED-O-MATIC 
metal belt CONVEYOR. A full B'/jxIl page 
letter or a postage stamp can be projected 
with equal ease, without flutter. 

2 YOU CAN project a lighted arrow onto 
any part of the illustration by means of 
the new Beseler built-in POINTEXt POINTER 
— thereby pointing out details without leav- 
ing the projector. 

4. YOU CAN use VU-LYTE on on uneven 
surface — project on small or large 
screens. In addition VU-LYTE is an amazingly 
quiet and cool operating opaque projector. 

These advanced, exclusive features, plus others, are incorporated in 
a projector that weighs only 35 lbs. and is reduced in price!

The Pageant Projector multiplies teaching effectiveness 

These school children are sharing a new experience . . . watching on film 
how people acmallr live in a far-off foreign country. Children learn better 
and teaching is easier when von use movies . . . whether black-and-white 
or color, silent or sound. 

.\nd 30U w-ill find the 16mm. Kodascope Pageant Sound Projector your 
best friend when using movies in your daily curriculum. A limited film 
library need not hani|>er you, because thousands of "ready-made"' films on 
almost any subject you can name are available from hundreds of widely 
located rental libraries todav. 

Vou will also find the Pageant Projector easy to of>erate . . . simple 
to thread and set up for classroom use. .\ny sixth or seventh grader can 
handle the presentation for vou. Dejjendable performance means trouble- 
free presentations. The optical system always projects the sharpest and 
clearest of pictures and a unique sound svstem has controlled tone volume 
for best of fidelity. Pupils are more sure to hear and understand the nar- 
ration clearlv whether from sound tracks or from the microphone or 
phonograph attachment used with silent films. 

Lifetime lubrication means no more oiling problems, makes your film 
prints last longer. The Pageant and speaker, in a single, fKjrtable case, 
weigh only 53 lbs. List price is S400. Let your Kodak .^udio- Visual dealer

BERTRAM was chosen to project 
the class film. Films hadn't meant 
much to B. But he had to watch 
the screen that day. He saw the 
complete story of the SEA UR-

reproduces. "Perfectly fascinating, 
perfectly fascinating!" the class 
heard Bertram say as he was re-

* Members of the Department nf 
Audio-Visual Instruction I NEA I plan 
to gather in Boston and other groups 
are headed for the School .Adminis- 
trator's meetings in St. Louis and Los 
Angeles during February and March. 
That's the immediate calendar of spe- 
cial interest to audio-visual directors 
and classroom film users. 

Emphasis on educational television 
continues to dominate manv of these 
local and regional gatherings of audio- 
visual groups. The issue here is that 
the apparent necessity of setting aside 
a fair percentage of channels for 
future t.v. use by education has been 
interpreted by many as meaning that 
the use of those channels was also 
immediate. Much of the controversv 
and the grave danger of wasteful 
spending could be removed from this 
situation by assuring education of the 
channels for at least five or ten vears 
ahead without requiring immediate 
operation of such facilities. 

No single institution or bonafide 
educational group has yet tested the 
full time ownership and operation of 
telecasting facilities for purely educa- 
tional programming. Iowa State's 
WOI-TV is a commercial operation 
with continued dominance of all that 
education deems bad in present com- 
mercial program fare. That is still 
the key question of 1952 in educa- 
tional telecasting: uhy does WOI-TV 
continue to telecast Berle, Godfrey. 
Captain Video, et al? 

At the recent School Broadcast Con- 
ference in Chicago, your editor met 
Mr. James MacPherson, DAVI secre- 
tary, in a brief debate on this subject. 
It is Mr. MacPherson's contention 
that his FCC testimony favoring edu- 
cational t.v. for classroom film pro- 
jection was quoted "out of context." 

■*■ The Instructional Film Reseanli 
Program, located at PeniisyKania 
State College and sponsored b) the 
L . S. Xavv. has set forth 10 principles 
' overnins film influence in the learn- 
ing-teaching situation. They should be 
of interest to all who use audio-visual 

1. Films are of greatest influence 
vvhen their content reinforces and ex- 
tends previous knowledge and atti- 
tudes. The converse of this is also 

2. The influence of a film is specific, 
not general. 

3. The influence of a motion picture 
increases as the content of the film is 
directly relevant to the audience re- 
action it is intended to influence. 

4. Reactions to a motion picture 
vary with film literacy, abstract in- 
telligence, formal education, age, sex, 
previous experiezice in the subject, and 
prejudice or predisposition of the audi- 

5. The influence of the motion pic- 
ture is primarily in the picture and 
secondarily in the accompanying lan- 
guage and or music and is relatively 
unaffected by the "slickness" of pro- 

6. Response to motion pictures is 
selective in terms of the familiarity 
and significance to the audience of 
the pictorial context in which the ac- 
tion takes place. 

7. Response to a motion picture is 
n'ost intense, efficient, and predictable 
when it shows actions from the stand- 
point of the trainee. 

8. Rate of development influences 
the impact of a motion picture on its 

9. Instructional te(hni(|ues built in- 
to the film or applied by the instructor 
substantially increase the effectiveness 
of a film. 

10. The relation of efficiency oi 
learning performance of a group to 
a film or filmstrip exhibited is influ- 
enced by the leadership of the instruc- 
tor who uses the aid as well as bv the 
effectiveness of the aid itself.

niques of the theatre are now avail- 
able from University of California's 
educational film sales department. De- 
scribed in a pamphlet recently pub-

introduction to theatre craft for stu- 
dents of dramatic art.

comparative advantages and disad- 
vantages of the four media of dramatic 
art: stage, radio, television and mo- 
tion pictures. Every stage of building 
a flat, from the blueprint to covering 
the piece with cloth, is described in 
One Way to Build a Flat. Make-Vp 
jar the Theatre illustrates in color 
the step-by-step processes of applying 
stage make-up. Color and Light

principles of additive and subtrac- 
tive color processes in relation to 
white light. Making Theatrical Wigs 
dscribes the entire process of this 
little-known craft. The sixth film 
in the series. Projecting Motion Pic- 
tures, covers a familiar subject that 
goes beyond the purely mechanical as- 
pects of projection. Here the stress 
is on the relationship between the audi- 
ence and the various elements of pro- 
jecting — sating, screen, loudspeaker,

Teen-Age Menace: Drug Addiction 


* The hazards of narcotic drugs, the 
causes and physiological effects of 
drug addiction, derivation of the vari- 
ous drugs, and treatment for those 
addicted to drugs is the content of a 
new 22 minute, black and white edu- 
cational motion picture. Drug Addic- 
tion, released by Encyclopaedia Britan- 
nica Films and produced in coopera- 
tion with the Juvenile Protective Asso- 
ciation and the Wieboldt Foundation 
of Chicago. 

Designed to present the facts about 
the growing menace of drug addiction, 
particularly among the youth of our 
country. Drug Addiction, it is hoped, 
will leave a deep impression on young 
minds and thus aid in the national 
effort to provide information which 
will help combat this shocking post- 
war problem which has become so 
prevalent within the past few years, 
Walter Colmes, EBFilms' president 

For Scliool and Coiiinuinitv 

Drug Addiction is intended for 
three areas in the high school curric- 
ulum — health and hygiene, problems 
of democracy, and guidance and also 
for college and adult levels, for dis- 
cussion groups such as church forums, 
for groups interested in public health, 
and for service clubs and similar or- 
ganizations, Drug Addiction is closely 
related to such other EBFilms as 
Alcoholism. Alcohol and the Human 
Body, and Wastage of Human Re- 

The film gives a survey of the entire 
problem of narcotics addiction from 
several aspects: from the point of view 
of individual education ; as a public 
health problem: as a law enforcement 
matter; and as a problem of rehabili- 
tating existing addicts. Woven through 
this factual presentation is the story 
of Marty Demelon. a youthful addict. 

Drugs Unrelenting Hold 

Marty is first seen in a courtroom 
where he is being held for stealing a 
clock which he intended to sell in or- 
der to purchase more drugs. He tells 
the judge his story of how he was 
introduced first to marijuana and later 
to heroin by a "friend." He soon be- 
comes addicted to the drug and must 
resort to stealing and selling what 
possessions he has in order to buv 

more drugs to avoid the dreaded 
withdrawal sickness. His whole life 
becomes centered about the drug. Be- 
cause of his changed personality he 
MO longer associates with his former 
friends. This sequence describes many 
symptoms which will help parents 
recognize possible drug addiction. 
Animated draw ings describe the source 
of the major drugs, heroin and other 
opiates, marijuana, and cocaine, and 
their effect upon the body. 

In concluding scenes Marty is seen 
undergoing treatment. He returns to 
his old environment but is shunned 
by his old friends who still consider 
him an addict. 

Strongest Plea to Youth 

Drug Addiction directs its strongest 
plea to young people and urges them 
never to experiment with drugs in any 
way. The film points out that only 
by avoiding drugs completely can 
every person be sure that he will re- 
main safe from a vicious habit which 
enslaves not only one's body but his 
soul as well. 

Collaborators for Drug Addiction 
were the Juvenile Protective Associa- 
tion of Chicago, a social agency which 
has handled hundreds of cases of drug 
addiction among young people, and 
the Wieboldt Foundation, a philan- 
thropic institution. Dr. Andrew C. Ivy, 
Ph.D., M.D.. acted as consultant on 
the film. Dr. Ivy is a vice president 
of the University of Illinois and head 
of its professional schools. 

Facts About the Picture 

Drug Addiction has a running time 
of 22 minutes. It may be purchased for 
S95 from Encyclopaedia Britannica 
Films, Wilmette, Illinois, or from any 
of eight EBF preview and rental li- 
braries in New York: Boston: Birm-

be rented for $4.50 for one to three 
days' use and $1.00 per day thereafter. 

Commentary: There's nothing "Sen- 
sational" about EBFilms' Drug Addic- 
tion : in fact, the film leans toward a 
sober, completely factual but terribly 
convincing presentation of this all-too- 
frequent problem. An important con- 
tribution to the documentation of this 
serious menace.

All Groups Interested in Audio-Visual Progress Can Use This Film 

TO BRING both lay and professional audiences a 
better understanding of the use and purpose of edu- 
cational films in school programs, the audio-visual 
field has at long last a completely neutral and objective 
studv of these "new" tools, appropriately titled New Tools 
for Learning. 

A Chicago industry premiere in January brought uni- 
versal commendation for the 18-minute 16mm sound mo- 
tion picture. \eii Tools for Learning is presented by the 
Lniversity of Chicago's Center for the Study of .\udio- 
\ isual Education and was a highly cooperative enterprise 
from the start. The idea first took shape in 1949 and in 
the early months of 1950. the University set up an advisory 
committee to supervise the planning and production. 

Aeiv Tools shows the relationship of national interest to 
that of specific aid to education; the film establishes the 
fact audio-visual education has reached a stage of signifi- 

cant development requiring professional leadership at the 
local, slate, and national levels. 

Incidentally, much of the film was photographed on 
classroom location in schools and colleges throughout the 
countrv. Cooperation of leading producers and government 
sources helped make A'pji- Tools an outstanding review of 
progress in the audio-visual field. 

The motion picture will be distributed on a quantity 
print order basis only by the Center for the Study of 
Audio-Visual Education. L niversity of Chicago. Organiza- 
tions may purchase prints from this source in larger 
quantities at approximately print cost: individual prints 
may be secured from regular dealer channels later. At 
least one major 16mm projector manufacturer has already 
purchased a large number of prints which it plans to use in 
a public relations program. There is no identification of 
any commercial source or producer in the film itself.

Working toward those important first words of speech. 

LITTLE CAROL was born deaf. At' first, no one 
noticed anything wrong, but one day her mother 
realized that Carol could hear nothing. A long 
time ago, this could have meant but one thing — she would 
be deaf and dumb, and shunned, ahnost as a mental defec- 
tive, for the rest of her life. As things are working out, 
however, Carol can look forward to a happy, constructive 
life, but she will need understanding and years of training 
to take her place in the world of tlie hearing. 

How she begins this training and what she can expect 
to accomplish are told in one of the most gripping and 
compassionate films on the problems of handicapped 
people ever produced. Sponsored by the Lexington School 
for the Deaf, and produced by Campus Film Productions, 
That the Deaf May Speafc. 42 min. color, has already won 
wide acclaim from dozens of newspapers, child welfare 


"That the Deaf 
May Speak" 

authorities and government officials in the few short weeks 
since its release. 

Carol, along with manv other children who were born 
deaf or who became deaf before learning to speak, is just a 
normal child at the Lexington School — outside, she would 
be a "special" child, a pitiful, deaf child. At the school 
children live together all week (they go home week-ends) 
and work together at the main problem of their lives — 
learning how to speak and to understand the speech of 
others. They iimst start the long travail in earliest infancy 
for if speech training is not begun early it may never be 
learned at all. No sign language is taught at the school 
and none is permitted. Training in speech and lip reading 
is made a part of every subject, for the children are taught 
a full school curriculum rather than just that concerned 
with overcoming the handicap. 

Wliat makes That the Deaf May Speak a wonderful 
experience to watch is the acting of the deaf children and 
particularly three-year-old Carol. The New ) ork Times 
called her performance one "that would put most Holly- 
wood starlets to shame." Other comments described the 
picture as "an artistic triumph." a "good bet for an 
Academy Award. ' a "standard against which all films of 
its class should be judged." It is all of that. But it was not 
made this way by lucky chance. The children at the 
school, like all children, are self-conscious, perverse, and 
sometimes possessed by tantrums. \et. some observers of 
the finished film felt sure that it must have been photo- 
graphed by "candid camera" techniques (which it wasn't), 
so lacking are the children in camera consciousness. Only, 
a deep love for children, the patience of Job and 50.000 
feet of film enabled producer-director Nat Campus to

bring forth such a beautifully finished lilin in lioth speech 
and sound. 

The day little Carol. Mike and Bea sa\ their first words 
seems truly a mighty triumph in the film. It is a wonderful 
moment for the audience, too. In scenes of the upper 
classes in the school we can see tlie direction of the chil- 
dren's efiForts. Carol's speech, like that of most congenitalh 
deaf people, mav never he eas\ to understand or |)Ieasant 
to listen to. but what a tremendous accomplishment it is 
that the speech she will never hear can be learned at all. 

The narration, written by Ralph Schoolman, is surely 
one of this top film writer's best scripts. It has the intimate 
and moving qualitv of telling the storv as if spoken to 
just one person.

purposes: primarily to give a greater understanding of

The Audio-Visual Journal 


A System of Film Control 

Resume of the Methods and Materials Developed 
for Schools l)y C. Harold Tahler, Massillon, Ohio 

half-century just past have placed 
new responsibilities on those in 
leadership capacity. These responsi- 
bilities cannot be ignored as we go 
forward to our goal of universal un- 
derstanding in an ever-broadening, yet 
shrinking, world. 

The expanding use of audio-visual 
materials in the schools and in com- 
munities points to needs in program- 
ming. Familiarity with equipment and 
availability of materials extends utili- 
ization through schools, homes, and 
communities. Classroom presentations, 
student and adult leadership group 
meetings, and many community co- 
operative projects have the idea in 
focus through use of one or several of 
the types of A/V materials. 

New Audio- Visual Centers 

In schools, the central source for 
these materials is no longer a picture 
or record collection or a place where 
equipment can be secured. It may be 
called a film Library. It may be an 
A/V Center with several or all types 
of A/V materials. It may be a Cur- 
riculum Center with the equipment 
and materials, and also have planned 
programming with experienced person- 
nel busily engaged in organizing eval- 
uations, selections, and the many cor- 
relations for expanded use of materials 
possessed and for new materials being 
considered as desirable for the area 
being served. 

The establishment of Centers for the 
classification, correlation, and circula- 
tion of audio-visual materials, requires 
cooperative leadership. With a few 
items, the need for programming is 
apparent to the ones who foresee 
growth and wish to avoid frequent 
reorganization as that growth takes 
place. With the many items of all 
types of A/V materials to consider, 
programming becomes a necessity and 

relegating the details to the impurtanl 
position of providing service, clears 
the way for expanded utilization. 

Availability and expanded utiliza- 
tion are important factors when justi- 
fication of ownership is considered. 
The ownership of present and of future 
A V materials places a responsibility 
of system, of programming, of service, 
squarely on the shoulders of those who 
would see the audio-visual program 
advance with adequate finance. An 
adequate budget will seldom precede 
the service nor will it be maintained 
without approaching anticipated re- 

Many schools have had some expe- 
rience with one, several, or perhaps 
all the types of A/V materials. Some 
have established Centers. Materials 
are available from these sources and 
service requests indicate growth. Pat- 
terns for functional A/V programming 
should anticipate additions of more 
materials and, plans for service in clas- 
sification, correlation, and circulation 
can provide for a system which is 
functional at the outset and which will 
expand without the necessity of fre- 
quent, costly reorganization. The 
Triple C System is devised to handle 
any or all the types of materials: Dra- 
matizations, Planned Field Trips, Ex- 
hibits, Demonstrations, Motion Pic- 
lures, Still Pictures, Recordings, Radio 
& T/V Experiences and Scripts, Vis- 
ual and Verbal Symbols. 

Advantages of Triple C System 
The Triple C System is simple. It 
favors utilization. It motivates ex- 
pansion. It services all types of A/V 
materials and can handle equipment. 
It minimizes details. It permits and 
promotes correlations. It eliminates 
repeated catalog and supplement ref- 
erence expense. It localizes identifica- 
tion, content, coverage, availability, 
booking, and all such references at 
one place. This avoids "criss-cross" or 
"back and forth" work requirements 
for personnel at the Center and thus 
retains the simplicity needed where 
help is limited. 

The Triple C System is complete. 

The consideration at the A/V Center 
or Curriculum Center and at all points 
of use is a consideration of reference. 
There is reference to data such as 
source, type, cost, length, inspection, 
invoice date, title and physical data 
of items. This reference is made in 
complete form at the time of accession. 
The use level and purposes and the 
evaluations made of the item become a 
])art of the record. There are provisions 
for correlations in other areas to be 
noted on the original reference card, 
and actual correlation cards are made 
for the item as in-service use points 
the need for these references. 

Local Integration With Studies 
The Triple C System permits local 
integration of materials with the cur- 
riculum, and the reference cards are 
so devised that local interpretation of 
study guide helps and presentations 
can be composed and recorded. 
These local interpretations can relate 
the materials to specific uses, and com- ■ 
bined with useful portions of the com- 
mercially produced guide, the result- 
ing composite can provide the appli- 
cable utilization points suggested by 
the potential user as well as those sug- 
gested by the producer or collaborator. 
This composite guide becomes a part 
of the complete reference for the item 
as it is placed on the standard 5x8 
classification card and on any corre- 
lation cards relating to the item. This 
standard card size is large enough to 
accept all the data necessary for all 
references in classification, correla- Jk 
tion, and circulation. • 

There are many evident advantages 
to having all references complete on 
a single card, and those who have at- 
tempted to file the many odd size 
sruides available for some films and 
filmstrips, are aware of the difficulties 
of housing the guides, difficulties of 
securing more than a review of con- 
tent and less tlian a text on the sub- 
ject, and finally are aware of the diffi- 
culties of finding out what was where. 
Locally composed guides for all items 
of all types accumulates the advan- 
tages and disposes of the weaknesses 



of "ready niaiie" references ami allows 
effective cooperation in local curric- 
uliiiii profiraniniing. Evaluation of the 
material and integration to the lur- 
riculuni can thus be complete ami 
precise and those who share in this 
programming will share in a type of 
in-per\ ice training that is meaningful 
and productive. 

The duplication ot this complete 
reference is simplv a matter of cop\ - 
ing in a siiif;U- typing lo a Ki;aI)V 
Master which has the form of the 
card imprinted. Reproduction is as- 
loniplished hv placing this Rkai)\ 
Master on a spirit dupliialion ma- 
chine and feeding in blank card stock. 
Both the form and typed material on 
a card is the result, and as manv 
copies of this original can be run as 
may be desired ... or if procedures 
are followed as recommended for a 
school svs'.em, there would be lico 
cards furnished to each use point or 
place where references to the Center's 
offerings are made. One card would 
be placed in alphabetical order in the 
alphabetical file and the otlier card 
would be placed in numerical order in 
the numerical file where references 
are filed by subject coverage. The 
immediate availability of complete ref- 
erences at nominal cost is possible 
with such cataloging procedures. 

Permanent and Current Files 

The Triple C System is permanent 
and always current. The alphabetical 
and numerical (subject area I files are 
elastic for as items are classified as 
new offerings from the Center, imme- 
diate reference and utilization is made 
possible simply by placement of the 
5x8 card in each file. Removal of anv 
item from circulation is the reverse or 
simple removal of the reference card 
from each file. The inventory is as 
current as yesterdav's invoices. The 
necessity, expense, delay, and person- 
nel time for re-organization of printed 
catalogs and supplements is completely 

The booking sheet I at the Center) 
is so devised that it "over-rides" the 
permanent card and thus requires 
no duplicate reference, and by simple 
reversals, provides booking for the 
item and utilization record of the item 
for 4 years. Preparation for booking 
and use for another 4 years is merely a 
matter of insertion of a new booking 
sheet over the permanent Master card 
at the Center. The four year record of

Functional Applirations of This System 


■k The item is referred, appraised, se- 
lected for evaluation, and secured as

greatest value according to its cover- 
age and real content as it relates to the 
local curriculum. A permanent Clas- 
sification number is then assigned to 
the item. It is a composite of prefix

of this TYPE for this subject coverage. 

Type of material, coverage from 
general to specific, and inventory are 
combined for functional references in 
this manner for any item as it is ac- 
quired and accessioned. The locally 
composed evaluation and study guide 
and the physiial data of the item is 
typed to the MASTER CARD. Dupli- 
cates for alphabetical and numerical 
files are run on the spirit duplicator. 
Two cards of each reference are fur- 
nished to all use points. The READ\ 
MASTER "ditto" permits this printing 
at low cost, on equipment owned by 
most schools, and prepares references 
so that immediate use can be made of 
new items. 

At the Center, the booking sheet is 
housed with the MASTER CARD in 
visible files with cards numericallv ar- 
ranged. The clerk has no "back track- 
ing" or "criss-cross" work in booking 
A forward movement through the nu- 
merically arranged listings is all that 
is required to locate the item, and to 
know its availability, coverage, evalua- 
tion, and all data necessary for service 
from the Center. 

At the service or use point, the 
teacher can look in the alphabetical 
file listing or the numerical file listing 
and from either, can secure the classi- 
fication call number for requisition. 
If she chooses to use the numerical 
listing, she will find all materials of 


5£2tJngDala I 

all the types for main subject cover- 
ages within a section of the file. For 
example . . . the Art Instructor would 
need only concern herself with listings 
700-799 to cover all MASTER listings 
and CORRELATED listings dealing 
with Fine Arts. This eliminates the 
necessity of going through the com- 
plete inventory of the Center. 


"k An item found to be useful in other 
areas beyond the original class in 
which it is listed can be listed as a 
correlation. This expands utilization. 
An assignment of a correlation num- 
ber, duplication of the original data 
from the Master Card, and this ref- 
erence supplied on a vellow correlation 
card for placement in each number 
file, permits correlations of all mate- 
rials. These references of correlations 
appear in proper number order icith 
the section listings. These cards will 
be filed numerically by correlation 
number but each carries the original 
call number also for requisition pur- 

A correlation number C727-1 on a 
\ ellow card would indicate to the 
teacher that the item has utilization in 
ART and the classification number, 
MP942-L on the same card would in- 
dicate original reference (motion pic- 
lure. English History, item 1 in this 
subject area I . She would use the 


MP942-1 as call number to requisition 
the material. As additional uses for 
the item would be evaluated, addi- 
tional correlation cards would be is- 
sued so that extended utilization of all 
materials is a matter of evaluation 
and curriculum study. 

Anyone can immediately select items 
dealing with any desired coverage or 
subject area. This allows for individ- 
ual or group study with The Idea in 
Focus. Selection by types is as easy 
as reading the prefixes of the numbers. 
At the Center, the Director or others 
can know at anv time the total inven- 
tory and also the inventory by types 
for any subject coverage. 


'k The item is requested by number. 
If several items are requested, they are 
arranged on the requisition sheet in 
numerical order. Availabilitv can be 
determined at the Center with a "once 
through" checking, and the booking 
of those items available for the dates 
wanted is completed by drawing a 
line through the exact dates on the 
over riding booking sheet, placing the 
borrower's name or code on the sheet, 
and drawing a circle around the call 
number of the item on the requisition 
sheet to indicate completed booking. 
The clerk is immediately able to con- 
firm booking. 

This confirmation as well as all nec- 
essary shipping control labels results 
with one typing, with the booker's 
confirmed requisition sheet as refer- 





ence. Five forms: Shipping Label, 
Return Label, Confirmation, In- 
ventory Control Record, and Uti- 
lization Report are prepared with 
this one typing operation. The last 
three carry dates of booking data with 
complete Shipping Date. Dales For 
Use. and Dale Due Ba^k and all forms 
carry the Classification Call Number 
and the Title of the item or items to 
be included in the planned pick-U]i or 

At the time of typing, the CON- 
FIRMATION COPY is sent to the 
person making the request for the ma- 
terials. This record will pennit ]>lan- 
ning at the use point and allow local 
progranuning to be completed. The 
other four labels are fastened together 
with a paper clip and filed in the ship- 
ping file in proper SHIPPING date 
order. At the time of shipping, these 
forms are taken from the OUT file, 
and the Shipping Label (gummed #1) 
is placed on the package; the Return 
Label (gummed ^2) and the Utiliza- 
tion Report Form are placed in the 
package: and the Inventory Control 
Record (#4) is placed in the IN file 
at proper RETURN DATE order. 

Tardiness at the Center on ship outs 
and tardiness of the user on returns 
can be controlled. All five copies 
carry reference number and title of 
each item included in the shipment 
which again avoids '"criss-cross" 
checking, package opening to deter- 
mine contents, or "back-forth" work 
at either the Center or use point. 


"k The flexibility of the system allows 
for selection of materials and equip- 
ment to meet the size, service and 
budget of the area to be served. Hous- 
ing of Classification cards w ith Book- 
ing sheets is possible with files of the 
sectional type, with additions of sec- 
tions as needs develop, however, the 
10 drawer capacity 630 items or the 17 
drawer 1071 capacity type file is the 
better choice if needs can be antici- 

The equipment and supplies to 
serve all use points can be acquired 
as the program grows and while the 
Center is operating if desired and the 
extension of the service for reference 
purposes can thus remove the necessity 
of catalog listings and supplements. In 
some instances, the complete system

The installation of a system at the

possessed is obviously a different mat- 
ter from installation with a program 
that is growing or with one that is 
presently of some size but in need of 
a flexible system to handle service re-

as to size, help available, and service

with local needs and problems, as the

the job to be done, but for a relative 
cost factor, the desired materials,

Film Control Simplified 

Kardex System Lsed in California 
Schools — Desrrilied by L. T. Bolger 

A I'DIO-VISL'AL materials have served a successful 
/-^ apprenticeship to the classroom teacher. The value 
of films in the classroom is recognized and accepted. 
As a result, entire audio-visual departments have been 
growing bv leaps and bounds. New film liliraries are mak- 
ing their appearance in schools throughout the nation — 
and with the new libraries come new- problems in record- 
keeping, because anv Upe of expansion alwavs presents 
difficulties of control. 

A growing audio-visual department must have an accur- 
ate, speedy and yet easily expandable system of opera- 
tion. Schools everywhere are now confronted with just 
such "growing pains." 

The city schools of Pasadena. Glendale and Santa 
Monica are not immune to the audio-visual departmental 
growth problems. These three school systems soon dis- 
covered that their vertical card file system for booking 
film requests was inadequate under the increased work 
load. The system was slow, inaccurate, and unwieldy. 
Film libraries in all three groups of city schools were 
Mvamped with requests from the various teachers and 
schools for reels from their film library. It became in-

creasingly difficult to operate efticientl) under the vertical 
c.ird file system. 

Although the schools of Pasadena. Glendale and Santa 
Monica are operated independently — no active connec- 
tion between their records — all three groups of schools 
have solved their film-booking difficulties in the same 
manner. Each school has installed a Remington Rand 
kardex Visible Booking System. Mow film bookings take 
only one-half the time. This is an important factor be- 
cause of the large number of phone bookings. 

Through the use of Kardex. schools in Pasadena. Glen- 
dale and Santa Monica find that they have eliminated 
a great deal of confusion that often arises when more 
than one person works with the booking records. In the 
new system, cards are never out of place and there is 
no possibility of duplicate bookings. 

Another tangible result these schools have met from 
the installation of Kardex is the savings in clerical costs, 
in order that audio-visual departments keep abreast with

the increased demand, schools find that they must either 
hire extra help or improve their system. Pasadena. Glen- 
dale and Santa Monica find that Kardex has made it 
possible for work to be handled much more efficiently, 
with it it is possible to do without extra help to handle 
the increased load. 

Speaking for our own audio-visual section, we find our- 
selves giving better service with less time and effort, and 
the record control system is expanding nicely with the 

Because the cards in our new control set-up are housed 
on slides or panels with visible margin indexing, the rec- 
ords are never lost or niisfiled once they have been prop- 
erly set up. And this is extremely important, particularly 
uhen there is more than one person working with the 

Another big improvement has been the elimination of 
duplicate bookings and. of course, the confusion resulting 
from such duplications. The records are simple and clear.

by Thoinai' H. Boardiiian. Aiulio-\"isual Director, Freeport (111.) Schools 

IN RECENT YEARS the audio-visual program has 
received wide acclaim as the most effective medium 
to be used bv a teacher who wants to be economical 
with her time. Yet many teachers who have tried to use 
these materials have found the results don't live up to the 
claims made for them. Why? 

Actually there are many reasons, but one that is all- 
inclusive is this: Teachers don't take time to use audio- 
visual materials to their full advantage; too many have 
the impression that some kind of magic is inherent in a 
film or record and that learning from these sources is 
automatic. If there is an)-thing automatic about teaching, 
the audio-visual program ISNT it. The audio-visual pro- 
gram must be mentally and manually operated. 

Because so many teachers feel that this program is 
self-suflScient, a study was made to determine just how 
automatic these materials are. You as a teacher will find 
it worth your reading time to finish this article and find 
out what the study revealed. 

They Don't Always Believe What They See 

A rather startling revelation to come from audio-visual 
studies is that many students do not accept or believe 
what they see on the screen. Students may see a film on 
Holland showing that they dress much the same as we, but 
in a test these students answer that typical Dutch dress is 
wooden shoes and baggy pants. Or they may see a film on 
Switzerland shomng the very extensive use of electricity 
and in a test state that Switzerland uses but little electricity. 
Why? The students are xmprepared to accept new ideas 
and concepts, so they fall back on their previous ideas that 
probably came from the traditional stories told in the early 
elementary grades. In later years neither the teaching nor 
the learning was automatic. 

Part one of this study was to find to what extent stu- 
dents who had false impressions of customs, dress, activi- 
ties and living conditions in several foreign countries, 
changed their concepts when the correct visual information 
alone was expected to do the job. To determine what false 
impressions students have, a questionnaire was developed 
and administered to 117 5th and 6th grade students early 
in the school year. During the year eight special units 
were given which visually and verbally gave the correct 
impressions. The questionnaire was repeated at the close 
of the year and the false impressions that changed were 
counted. The percentage results appear later in the article. 

No Automatic Increase in Total Learning 

The second part of this study was to see if there was 
an increase in total learning over traditional methods when 
films were used automatically. Each class read four of the 
special units and were tested, the other four units com- 
bined reading, seeing a correlated film and testing. This 
was done as automatically as possible, or it might be stated 
— a poor method of film utilization was used. The students 
were not expecting to see a film; there was no class prep- 
aration of any kind, and there was no follow-up except the 

test. This procedure is inadequate, but many teachers 
use it regularly. 

♦Results of the Ouestionnaire: Of the twenty-seven 
questions only five had lO'/v or more of the students 
change to correct answers, and well over half the questions 
had less than 50% of the students change their opinions 
during the year. The range was from 14 to 85%. and the 
average was approximately 45%. I doubt if teachers are 
satisfied when only 45% of the class finish a year's study 
knowing the correct answers. The suggestion is made that 
teachers might find it advantageous to devise a question- 
naire and use it in a similar manner, making sure to cor- 
rect the wrong impressions as they come up in the regular 
course of study. 

♦ Results of the Special I'nits: This was a measurement 
of one type of film utilization (conceded to be a poor 
onel to traditional methods (reading only). This study 
certainly indicated that the amount of learning was far 
less than might have been expected. The overall percentage 
gain was 6.19%. Other audio-visual studies in this field 
indicate that with better utilization, gains of from 20 to 
30% could have been expected. 


1. The students who got the greatest benefit from this 
type of film presentation were those who were poor 
readers. The good readers showed practically no gain. 

2. The percentage gain with this type of presentation, 
compared to what could be gained by using a method that 
is educationally sound, should make teachers dissatisfied 
with anything but good methods. 

3. One of the aims of the social studies program is to 
have students realize the many similarities between our 
country and others. This study indicates that less than 
50'^c of the students in the 5th and 6th grades will change 
their opinions unless the teacher takes special care to call 
attention to the false impressions. This strengthens the 
opinion that the Audio-Visual program is not automatic, 
but manually and mentally operated. 

4. The general consensus of opinion by the teachers 
who participated in this study was that a questionnaire 
used at the beginning of each year would be invaluable. 
It would help teachers realize the areas of false conceptions 
that needed to be corrected during the year. 

5. At the close of the study the students answered a 
brief questionnaire. It was discovered that students are 
aware of the contribution a film can make and are dis- 
satisfied with poor methods of utilization. 

There are many excellent books describing good methods 
of classroom film utilization. One of the most excellent 
descriptions is in the book Audio-] isual Paths to Learning, 
W. A. Wittich, Harper Bros., 1946. It is also suggested 
that every school subscribe to the audio-visual magazines. 
See and Hear and Educational Screen, in which one 
often finds articles by teachers describing successful meth- 
ods of film utilization. It is worth your time to get good 
results. •

Malayan War in "Alien Orders" 

♦ All-but-forgotten hostilities in Ma- 
laya provide dramatic material for a 
new CrowTi Film Unit production en- 
titled, Alien Orders. Running 11-min- 
utes, this 16mm sound film shows how 
the British police find among millions 
of men communist guerillas ^vith alien 
guns and alien orders. British and 
Malayan troops fight with all the tech- 
niques of a modern campaign against 
the unseen enemy lurking in the Ma- 
layan jungle. Work of the guerillas is 
resisted bv thousands of Malayan vol- 
unteers who guard mines and planta- 
tions. The film proves the struggle in 
Malaya to be no minor skirmish but a 
war in deadly earnest against a treach- 
erous enemy. 

Filmstrip on Atomic Protection 

♦ How to Lessen Chances of Injury 
from an Atomic Explosion is the title 
of a new single-frame, color filmstrip 
released recently by the Societv for 
Visual Education, Inc. Consisting of 
45 captioned frames, the film was de- 
signed primarily to teach pupils in the 
elementary grades to help protect 
themselves from injuries caused by 
atomic bombing. It dramatizes situa- 
tions at school where a child would 
most likely be during an atomic bomb 
alarm test or actual attack. 

Produced by Alexark and Norsim 
under the direction of Dr. Alexander 
Arkatov, the new color strip lists for 
$6.50 and is available through anv 
SVE dealer. 

Service to Education 

Typical of modern audio- 
visual dealer facilities now 
rising in various sections of 
the U. S. is this new Chicago 
headquarters of \ ydra Visual 
(left) which includes projec- 
tion room, theatre, studios, re- 
pair department, research, and 
audio-visual development faci- 
lities. I^ersonnel includes a 
complete staff of electronic 
and photographic workers. 

National Check-List 
for A-V Maintenance 


'T'here's a network of some hun- 
-■■ dreds of specializing audio-visual 
dealers across the U. S. and Canada 
whose business it is to sell and service 
the many lines of audio-visual equip- 
ment which our schools find increas- 
ingly useful in expanding the world be- 
yond their classroom walls. 

Not all of these dealers have earned 
the cherished recognition of their par- 
ent companies as authorized "service 
stations." In fact, not all maintain the 
minimum essential facilities and ex- 
])erienced personnel necessarv to main- 
tain and perform certain repairs 
within the scope of their regionalized 
service. Those who do have this fac- 
tory recognition are among the audio- 
visual dealers listed in this first com- 
plete check-list of nationwide audio- 
visual maintenance facilities which ap- 
pears on the following pages. 

Consumer Education 

Milwaukee's far-famed Pho- 
toart ^ isual Service, headed 
hy Roa Birch, showed mod- 
ern visual dealers enter- 
prise when it staged an all- 
day consumer education pro- 
gram to which representa- 
tives of Wisconsin schools 
and industry came in droves 
to learn about latest equip- 
ment and a-v methods pic- 
tured at left and right. 

It is coincidental (but important to 
note) that these dealers may also pro- 
vide special instruction in the opera- 
tion and care of modern equipment to 
the schools which they serve. Good 
equipment will last a long time and 
save needless replacement expenditure 
if it is properly operated and cared 
for by experienced hands. Consult any 
of the dealers listed in these pages for 
details of such service. 

\o intention is indicated here to 
list these facilities as film libraries, 
though many of them also maintain 
such services for school and commun- 
ity clientele. They also provide spe- 
cial service in projection rental and 
will furnish operators and equipment 
for larger group showings. Keep this 
list for a valuable permanent refer-

Wilcox-Gay Tape Recorder 
Features Push-Button Control 

♦ Believing that tape recorders for 
school and church use must be com- 
pact, lightweight, portable, and sim- 
ple to operate, the Wilcox Gay Com- 
pany has announced a high fidelity, 
different tape recorder with complete- 
ly automatic push button controls. 

It is no longer necessary to have 
trained operators accompany each re- 
corder as it makes the rounds of the 
school rooms, the manufacturer's rep- 
resentative states. You simply plug in 
this new Recordio, push a button and 
it records — push another button and 
it plays back. Two other buttons give 
fast forward or fast reverse. Thread- 
ing has been simplified too. 

A three-way recording system per- 
mits live recording through micro- 
phone and recording through radio or 
from phonograph. Standard magnetic 
tape is used which can be kept indef- 
initely for permanent records or it can 
be erased and used over and over 

The new unit is completely self- 
contained and weighs less than 18 
pounds. It plays up to four hours on 
one seven-inch reel. It is available in 
two models, both priced at $149.95, 
with prices slightly higher west of the 

New features include a fast, motor- 
driven rewind; speedy skip forward 
or skip reverse; an easy-to-read timing 
indicator which measures the exact 
amount of tape used and permits quick 

location of any recorded sequence on 
the reel; a lightweight, sensitive mi- 
crophone; and wide tone control from 
treble to deep base.

able from MoNsoN Sales Corpora-

London's Spring Fair to Show- 
World's Smallest 16mni Projector 

* The scientific and photographic 
equipment section of the British Indus- 
tries Fair to be held in London next 
spring (May 5-161 will contain items 
of interest to American bu\ers. 

What may be the smallest sound 
projector in the world, for instance, 
will be shown by Southern Films Ltd. 
It is the Sofil ".Minor," a 16nnn sound 
and silent film projector. No larger 
than the average portable typewriter, 
the entire equipment — projector, am- 
plifier, transformer, loud-speaker and 
leads — packs into a single case meas- 
uring 12 X 12 X 9, and the special ver- 
sion for the United States weighs only 
24 pounds. 

This remarkable feat has been made 
possible by the free use of light alloys 
and miniature electrical equipment, 
plus the reduction of components to a 

Precision-built throughout, the pro- 
jector has a heavy duty universal type 
motor, governor controlled for silent 
and sound speeds, operated by a single 
switch. Its high efficiency 6-1 shut- 
tle/shutter ratio intermittent motion 
allows maximum viewing per picture 
frame during each cycle and eliminates 

undue strain on llu' iilin pcrloration. 
The film threads through the projector 
it two points and between two sets of 
rollers and around the sound-head 
drum. There are no sprocket shoes to 
lift, no lav-on idlers to thread. The 
simple film path can be followed even 
by inexperienced operators. Further 
information may be obtained from

kenzie .Street. Slough, Bucks., Kngland.

Learning is made fascinating when 
EBFilms are used in your classrooms. 
Difficult subjects become understandable — 
stimulating. Students learn up to 35% 
more in the same length of time. 
They remember up to 55% longer. 

Made by educators— for educators. 

The reason.'' Teachers and students respond 
instinctively to educationally superior films. 
Every EBFilm is produced under the close 
supervision of outstanding authorities in sub- 
ject matter, and in audio-visual presentation. 
The result is films with greater educational 

In addition, teachers find that EBFilms tie 
in more accurately with their textbook 
courses of study and study plans. For EBFilms 
offer not just a single film on a subject, but a 
whole series of films to suit every grade and 
to tie in with related courses. 

Plan now to let this great educational tool 
do more for you teachers and students. Ask 
your EBFilms representative to help you plan 
a successful audio-visual program— with

."SO.OOO Titles Carried in New 
Library of Congress Catalog 

♦ The Library of Congress recently 
issued one of the most valuable film 
reference books published in many 
\pars. This new publication is a mon- 
umental L2.56-page catalog that lists 
U'ore than 5().(H)0 motion pictures reg- 
istered in the copyright office from 
1912 through 19.39. Entitled Motion 
Pictures, 1912-1939. the catalog con- 
tains much information that has up 
until now been available only after 
]>rolonged research in the files of the 
copyright office. 

As time passes and old producing 
companies and their films are forgot- 
ten, this volume will become increas- 
ingly valuable as a reference book on 
films and film historv. The informa- 

tion given about each film includes, 
insofar as possible, the sponsor, infor- 
mation about the published work on 
which the film was based, physical 
description, credits, claimant and date 
of copyright, and the author of the 
film storv. The material for the en- 
tries, which are listed alphabetically, 
was obtained mainlv from the record 
books of the copyright office, the orij;- 
inal applications for the registration 
of the copvright claims, and descrip- 
tive material that was supplied at tbi- 
time the films were registered. 

The cumulative catalog has a 260- 
page index, which lists the individuals 
and organizations associated with each 
motion picture, and a '"Series List." 
which provides the name of the copy- 
right claimant and the title and date 
for each motion picture of a series. 
Anv particular film may be located in 
a variety of ways— by title, producing 
company, copyright claimant, alter- 
nate title, name of the work on which 
the film was based. .«eries title, author 
of the film story, sponsor, and releas- 
ing or distributing agents. 

Motion Pictures. 1912-1939 is the 
first publication in the cumulative se- 
ries of the Catalog of Copyright En- 
tries. Work has started on a supple- 
mentar\ volume that will cover motion 
pictures copy righted in the years 1940 
to 1949. These two cumulative vol- 
umes and the subsequent semiannual 
issues of motion pictures and film- 
strips in the regular series of the 
Catalog of Copyright Entries will con- 
stitute a comprehensive bibliography 
of Inited States motion pictures from 
1912 to date.

president of M.\V.\, says in his foreword "the audio-visual 
programs reported are well-known for success in coping 
with the many problems of this field. They were selected 
so as to report patterns of organization, financial resources, 
audio-visual services and effective techniques." 

Mr. Lemler considers, in his pre-sununation, that "the 
audio-visual program is a comjilex oj)eration." He notes 
that it "requires order, direction, and leadership." Thr 
tenor of the reports indicates that the "best way to provide 
these essentials is to centralize responsibility in an audio- 
visual director or coordinator with the necessary compe- 
tencies of leadership and administration." 

Darkeninj: a I niversal Classroom Problem 

One very important area is highlighted as most of the 
contributors emphasize the need for adaptation of class- 
rooms for audio-visual work. Darkening, for example, is 
repeatedlv cited as an obstacle to successful classroom use 
of projected materials. Helpfully, the book also cites some 
specific ways in which Michigan a-v directors have solved 
this problem but we are also reminded that the problem is 
perpetuated by failure to provide facilities in new build- 
ings. Lloyd Cartw right, who directs the Saginaw Count) 
.\udio-Visual Education Center, savs "Superintentlents and 
school boards who are planning the construction of new 
buildings should insist that drapery track installations be 
specified in the architect s plans. A determined stand on 
the part of educators in demanding these installations is of 
utmost imi)ortance for the reason that the current plans 
for new buildings have been in the direction of admitting 
the maxinmm of natural light. 

Service, this report concludes, is the keynote of every 
successful audio-visual program. As implementing pro- 
grams, "audio-visual programs ha\e meaning only to the 
extent that . . . they . . . assist the work of other depart- 
ments and acti\ ities of the school." You'll value your copy 
of this well-illustrated, well-organized and thorough! v pro- 
fessional collection of "case histories" of hard work well 
done. — OHC

SOUND WAVES Is a demonstration- 
type film. By means of special lab- 
oratory equipment, ttie phenome- 
na of sound are explained clearly 
and simply. A tuning forK illustrates 
ttiat back and fortli motion, or 
vibration produces sound. The 
properties of sound waves, such as 
wave length, amplitude, frequency, 
are likened to movement of pendu- 
lum, waves in a pool of water, and 
various animated symbols. On ani- 
mated models, a set of beads dem- 
onstrate longitudinal waves and 
show that vibrating particles move 
along the path of waves. A clock 
limes wave motion to explain how 
speed of sound waves is deter- 
mined. Concluding experiments 
show how speed of sound Is mea- 
sured in air, in water and In solids.

The Budget and YOU 

by Charles HofT, Omaha Municipal University 

AS 1 STOOD. 1 WATCHED— 1 could not but be im- 
pressed with the many fine cars on the paved high- 
way — cars zooming in both directions at from 50 
to 75 miles an hour, cars with all the conveniences man s 
mind could conceive. 

My mind took me back to another day twenty years 
ago when I came to Kearney in my high-wheeled Model-T 
Ford from mv home at Neligh. It was a day remembered 
because of sandy roads, high centers, a hot radiator, and. 
if I were lucky, only two flat tires. 

But through the years our state has had an organization 
known as the Good Roads Association. Other states have 
similar groups. Through their efforts and the efforts of 
many private citizens in educating the public, properly 
informing the legislators, insisting that our automobile 
manufacturers, service agencies and highway contractors 
keep abreast of the motoring needs of our state, no ont- 
need be too ashamed of our highway systems today. 

So it is with our audio-visual program in the schools. 
The use of such aids is not new. Every teacher in the 
country has used maps, charts, globes, phonographs, field 
trips, museums, etc. Manv have used movie and slide 
projectors. But just as we have gone through a period 
of pioneering and development with our vehicles of trans- 
portation, we are now in an era of special attention to a 
"new vehicle" for learning. 

Teachers must learn where to find films and slides for 
specific learning situations. They must learn how to use 
those films and slides most effectively to reach their ob- 
jectives. But furtlier, teachers must continue to be com- 
munity leaders — to inform the public of the value and the 
efficiency of film for classroom teaching. The teacher- 
must here tajje the place of the Good Roads Association. 
Teachers must explain the need to provide a better vehicli' 
for better education. 

Our communities look to our teachers for leadership. 
Citizens cannot all be educational specialists. School 
board members cannot be expected to keep informed on 
good teaching methods unless school administrators and 
teachers provide the '"know-how'' and the community 
leadership. School boards and communities will provide 
the finances for better education if they understand what 
is needed and how it will help. Audio-visual aids can be 
seen and touched. The proof of their value is evident in 
many schools of our country as well as in our successful 
war training programs. The job of convincing your com- 
munity is not difficult if you yourself learn the values and 
the proper usage of audio-visual aids. But it is your pro- 
fessional duty to guard your community against visual 
education racketeers. A sound visual education program 
for your school cannot be "sold"' to your school board by 
an equipment dealer who completes his job when he has 
the signature on an order. The purchase of equipment 
does not guarantee good usage. When teachers are ready 
and know that they need physical equipment, it next be- 
comes their responsibility to explain that need for visual 
education equipment and materials to the connnunity. •

.Maurice C. .McCann Outlines Need 
lor Improved Film Study Guides 

♦ Received in the office recently was 
a report from Maurice C. McCann. 
chairman of the \^ DAVI study guides 
committee. Its concern with a vital 
problem in audio-visual communica- 
tion would seem to call for quoting it 
in full. 

"The consensus of opinion of those 
interested in Audio-Visual education 
indicates that there is a definite need 
for study guides, particularly film 
study guides for teachers. Most of the 
film producers have well prepared and 
attractive guides to accompany their 
films. However, these guides are not 
made use of as extensively as they 
should be. In most cases the study 
guide is not received in advance of 
the film, and the teacher does not have 
enough time to plan and prepare the 
film presentation and lesson. Too 
often study guides are filed away and 
forgotten or the person in charge fails 
to send them out to the right peojjle at 
ihe right time. It is logical to assume 
that much of the value of the film 
|;resentation is lost if a film lesson plan 
is not available or used at the proper 
time. Some think it should be manda- 
tory that there is a written suggested 
plan of use for all films as well as 
other audio-visual materials such as 
filmstrips. slides, recordings, and tran- 
scriptions. The manner of use of such 
a study guide should be optional with 
the teacher who knows his own teach- 
ing situation and pupil requirements 
best. Whatever the source of films, 
should they be school owned, or 
through a state or private film center, 
the study guides should precede the 
film by two or three days. In event 
that this cannot be done or if the 
guides are not satisfactory, the teach- 
ers who use the films should pool their 
knowledge and write their own guides. 
Study guides written by teachers 
usually are more satisfactory. They 
may be sent out by someone assigned 
to the job in each building, in ad- 
vance, to each teacher and returned to 
lie used again. 

Make Them Brief. Effective 
"In a recent survev of studv guides 
of latest films, it was found that most 
guides consisted of one sheet 8^4 x 
11" paper printed on both sides. Per- 
haps it is best to be sure of its use by 
making it brief and effective. Teacher 

written guides could be mimeo- 
graphed. Actuallv state institutions 
distributing films should send out 
study guides as well as films. These 
could be a help if teachers wished to 
write their own. The format should 
be one that is most practical, effective 
and convenient to use. 

"The content of a studv guide is 
somewhat dependent upon the level 
and type of film. It is desirable to 
have illustrations and pictures if the 
guide is printed. According to our 
survev. the most necessarv requisite- 
are title, length, black and white oi 
color, sound or silent, cost, recom- 
mended subject area, introduction, or 
storv of film, related films, vocabularv. 
suggested study activities, books avail- 
able on subject and test questions. 

Other Key Points Noted 

"Other points to consider in writing 
a study guide are: difficult pronuncia- 
tions, what to do before showing, 
points to look for. what to do after 
showing, review or discussion ques- 
tions, answers to quiz questions, and 
sequences of scenes or continuitv. 

"The question of adequate study 
guides is now an important factor in 
the forward progression we must 
make in the continued use of Audio- 
visual materials. It is a challenge to 
those interested in Audio- Visual Edu- 
cation to fulfill this need for satisfac- 
lorv studv guides for teachers."

Visual Education Room: Community Center

pictured was- reconstructed for educational purposes 
from two idle, unattractive basement rooms. This 
special room, which in reality is a model auditorium with 
a miniature stage, serves nianv purposes. It contains 153 
seats w ith folding tablet arms and will acconmiodate one 
or more classes, or will serve as an ideal meeting place. 
The hea\ y velour pull draperies not only beautif\ but 
enable the room to be darkened for visual education pur- 
poses in about a half a minute. 

It was converted last winter, and since that time it has 
become the headquarters for a functional program of vis- 
ual education in the Elroy School as well as a center for 
community participation. 

It becomes automatically a Community Service Center 
that is an integral part of the school program, serving the 
needs of the children as well as the adults.. The room is 
designed to utilize all phases of audio-visual education — 
motion pictures, slides, opaque projection, electrical trans- 
criptions, radio, public speaking, dramatics, music pro- 
grams, music instruction, and assembly programs of vari- 
ous types. 

.\11 parent-teacher activities. Boy Scout and Girl Scout 
work. local Y.M.C.A. projects, civic forums, and countless 

reciprocal school-community relationships prevail within 
this ser\ ice center. Many programs originate here that 
are built around the community idea. In addition, the 
long corridor running along the outside of this room has 
been remodeled and in one corner kitchen fixtures were 
provided bv the P.T.A. for use by teachers, pupils, and 

The name "Community Ser^■ice Center" was probably 
first emplo\ed by Teachers College, Columbia Lniversity 
to bring to focus the idea that education is a community 
force. "As such, schools should be working in. uith. and 
for the communit) and not apart from the community.' 

Audio-yisual education takes on a very broad meaning 
in a center such as this set up to help students and educa- 
tional workers develop ways and means by which the) 
may serve their school and community better. 

Brentwood points with pride to the establishment of 
this vitalizing service center created from idle rooms and 
stored equipment. It has motivated finer pupil-pupil and 
school-neighborhood relationships: has inspired more 
home-school relationships: has increased participation in 
activities that influence children and has placed greater 
emphasis upon use of the school building b\ thf lon)- 
munity. Others may profit by our experience. •

A Practical Demonstration in Community Cooperation 

They Bring Films to the Handicapped 


bv Marion Strauss 

A\ EXCITIXG PLAN of visual education has been 
put into effect in St. Louis through the fine co- 
operation and co-ordination of ill the teachers of 
the home-bound. l2) the Division of Audio-Visual Edu- 
cation of the St. Louis Public Schools, and i 3 I a private 
agency called the Volunteer Film Association. 

The Volunteer Film Association is a twelve-vear old 
organization of men and women volunteers, who take pro- 
jectors and motion picture films into the homes of the 
handicapped of all ages and also into hospitals and other 
institutions. gi\ ing shows as a form of recreational therapv 
with the approval of the patient's physician. 

While the Association was still young, the Superintend- 
ent of Instruction of the St. Louis Public Schools granted 
the Volunteer Film Association the privilege of borrowing 
films from the library of the Division of Audio-Visual 
Education on the basis of the large number of school-age 
children the Association was caring for. 

After the St. Louis home-teaching program had become 
well established under the Pupil Welfare and Adjustment 
Division of the Public Schools, the plan for bringing 
school movies to the home-bound pupils was further de- 
veloped. This is how the plan works. When a home-taught 
child is also a patient of the Volunteer Film Association, 
the teacher mav request a showing of any film in the 
catalogue of the Division of Audio-Visual Education. The 
Division of Audio-Visual Education lends the film to the 
Volunteer Film Association, and a Volunteer Film Asso- 
ciation operator shows the film at the child's next regular- 
ly scheduled show. The teacher is not present, but she 
has had the opportunitv of familiarizing herself with the 
film, the handbook, and the catalogue description. The 
film, you see, supplements her teaching, and she can use 
il as the classroom teacher does. 

There have been excellent results, and evervone partici- 
pating in the program is most enthusiastic. • 

Ask Yourself: How Can I Serve?

Cooperation Helps Make a hiliii 

We Filmed Our Ideas 

by Evelyn Hoke. H;ill State Teachers College 

\^'ood\. Associate Professor in Physical Education, 
invited class members to state their interests in what 
the course. Recreation, should include. Student interest 
was high I Vt hen we were done, we all agreed that our 
ideas were good — so good that they should be documented 
in understandable graphic terms: so. we made a motion- 
picture report for other teachers to see and profit by. 

Here s our storv of play materials in the Elementary 

• We wanted to do something about providing activity 
for play periods I There were good reasons why unani- 
mous agreement prevailed: First, in considering better 
use of free time in or out of school, the class subscribed 
to the notion that facilities were insufficient for indoor 
play periods. There was usually a dearth of indoor game 
and toy kits and often, inadequate planning was done. 
Secondly, since as college students, they were training for 
teacher and-or parenthood, a study of this \ital topic 
w ould surely be of lasting benefit. 

Here's Our Six-Part Plan for Term \^ ork 
The plan for the terms work was structured something 
like this: 

1. Start by in\estigating some of the present conditions 
governing play periods. 

2. Make an evaluative study of available resources. 

3. From these total findings, list a starting set-up of 
plans and kits. 

4. Create ideas about ways for securing minimum 

5. Promote putting these plans and materials on trial 
in some schools. 

6. Retain lists, sets of drawings, direction sheets, and 
write a documentation of the developments as each of the 
above is completed. 

Finally, as a part of the record, make a motion picture. 
Play Materials in the Elementary School. 

Students Do the Field Research 
The students consulted with children, teachers, and par- 
ents to gather first hand information. They found that 
children should be allowed to obtain and make materials: 
use and care for tools, games, and accumulated materials. 
Teachers admonished them to gather a host of games 
and toys so that a child of any age could suit his day. t<p 
ponder, to manipulate, to push, to dramatize, or to build. 
X^ ithout hesitation, they came to me as Director of Teach- 
ing Materials Service, .\aturally this seemed to be another 
big opportunity for the Service to further the role of the 
OPEN WORKSHOP, which is maintained for the purpose 
of producing instructional materials. 

Straightaway general supplies were inventoried and 
needs listed in light of some of the students' sketches for 
the construction series. In addition to the hopper of scrap

We Filmed Our Ideas; 


supplies, the Teaching Materials Center secured gratis a 
truck load of discarded wooden boxes and a sizable load 
of top-grade kiln-dried hard woods from the trash heap 
of a lumber compan\ in another county. 

By purchase, the Teaching Materials Service added 
ready-made games, and bought such miscellany as paints, 
oilcloth, canvas, duck, and attractive puppet stage stuffs. 

The materials made either bv individuals or class units 
in this audio-visual laboratory are absorbed into the 
school's collection so that they become available for dem- 
onstration and use b\ the campus at large. 

Completion of the games was hastened. Meantime, the 
class made arrangements for us to transfer the kits to' 
Riley Elementary School in Muncie where the children 
« ould use the materials noon hours during the closing 
weeks of Miss Woody s course. 

We Find Good Lighting Is Essential 

Then the film making began! In spite of the schedule 
limits and the handicap of having a very simple assortment 
of tools, ideas were plentiful. Film shooting was confined 
to two noon hours. We had planned to operate with a mini- 
mum of technical equijiment. \^ e wanted to prevent the 
distraction due to having lighting equi|)ment in the way. 
Also, since we were striving for a pure documentary rec- 
ord, we planned to forego the complexity of rehearsals 
before shooting the action. Critics, of course, have re- 
minded us that it is evident that we allowed shooting con- 
ditions which were under par. I now advise that one 
should use ample lighting and overlook the possibility of 
intrusion because children are miraculously free of camera 
shvness when so intent upon their activ ities. 

Among the film sequences of the children at play, it is 
easy for the audience to share experiences along with the 
young actors. For example, one can readily identifv the 
child's sensation of balance and imbalance which com- 
bine to fortify or deter progress in a trial walk on the ivalk- 
ing beam. The element of practice is apparent in the fal- 
tering steps of some as they negotiate this nine-foot trip 

hk ^-i3

vn the beam which is uid\ Sdnie lour inches above the 
surface of the floor. 

Further in the film, one is convinced that there is a 
fertile field for providing for the play periods of the older 
children. Singly or in groups they were equally diverted 
with this new supply of puzzles and games. Their re- 
sponses would lead to the advocation that they "enjoy play 
as much as the lillle ffilks" and hence need as many games. 

Reaction to Our Project Is Enthusiastic 
The final sequence of the film, though very brief, gives 
glimpses of "Woody" and the class in the Teaching Mate- 
rials Service WORKSHOP busy with the preparation. 
Here learning was no chore and the interest was genuine. 
Of course, the class was delighted with the film. ( How- 
ever, this group was not unique in its enthusiasm and 
gratitude to us for the creative help offered in this labora- 
tory. This is a very enjoyable part of our Services. I These 
students left Play Education daily, virtually refreshed. Of 
course, one aspect of the situation plagued them — namely, 
that there were more ideas than could be executed within 
time and resource limits. 

In the main, the film Play Materials in the Elementary 
School has a two-fold purpose. First, it is a sort of docu- 
mentary record which is intended to suggest several pre- 
liminary understandings and to share some planning which 
may be of assistance to those people who are interested in 
providing for programs of plav. Secondly, the film is a 
kind of demonstration piece showing a pattern: or at least 
one example of the operations whereby a school service 
produces non-projected and projected instructional mate- 
rials. This film is a silent motion picture record of a com- 
bined teachers' college and grade school- experience. 
Though the majority of similar Library projects are not 
filmed this was taken because the class wanted it. 

Result : a Pictorial Record of Cooperation 

The film, being a vehicle for telling the story of the 
cooperation between this teachers college class, the school, 
and the audio-visual laboratory in tackling the problem 
of what-to-do for indoor play, has been seen by scores of 
people. They have been chiefly teachers, camp counselors, 
and administrators seeing it either as a result of renting 
ir or of purchasing it. School administrators have said 
that this whets their interest in the multi-sided approach 
to learning. Moreover, the scheme of putting the devices 
iin trial increases the value which they and their teachers 
attach to the widening opportunities for selecting and 
evaluating instructional materials via the motion picture 
film. •

Films are "the most important aid to learn- 
ing since the invention of printing!" This 
is what leading educators say about film 
teaching. How important then, that schools 
get only the best in educational films. 

We at Encyclopaedia Britannica Films believe 
chat a film, to really educate, must be both au- 
thentic and compellingly interesting. For this 
reason, EBF enlists the service of the world's 
outstanding authorities in subject matter and 
in audio-visual production. The result is films 
that teach better because they are education- 
ally superior. 

To get greater correlation 

And since film teaching must fit a variety of 
curriculums and textbooks. Encyclopaedia 
Britannica Films provide, not just a single 
film on a subject, but an entire series. 

How you can help 

I f schools are to get the full benefits of superior 
films these films must be kept in constant cir- 
culation. For films teach only when they are 
used and used properly. Here is where you 
can help by making every film in your library 
available with as little waste time as possible. 
Plan now for a more efficient film program.

Noe of the U.S. Navy will be the prin- 
cipal speaker. 

Goal of Film Council Month: 
Better Use of A-V Materials 

♦ During April film councils through- 
out the I nited States will be encour- 
aged, in observance of Film Council 
Month, to increase their promotion of 
organized cooperation among agencies. 
grou|)s and individuals in local com- 
munities, and to assure better and 
wider distribution as well as more 
effective use of audio-visual materials. 

Projects which are being encour- 
aged among the local councils during 
the month include special communit\ 
film forum panels which will conduct 
film forums at local organizations 
meetings: establishing audio- visual 
reference sections in libraries, univer- 
sities and other communitv centers: 
conducting community film workshops 



to stress proper film utilization and 
operation of A-V equipment, and ar- 
ranging special community film screen- 
ings using "community-interest" films. 

.Subject areas will include: child de- 
\elopment. community health, library 
services, community film services, con- 
servation, conservation of human re- 
sources, communitv recreation, family 
relations, education, housing, intercul- 
tural relations, international under- 
standing, making democracy work, 
labor and industry, economic prob- 
lems, rural communitv development, 
understanding ourselves, juvenile de- 
linquency, sex education and safety 

In conjunction with Film Council 
Month the FCA has launched a neu 
promotional project aimed at building 
the membership ranks of individual 
councils and establishing new councils 
in areas where none exist. An en- 
couraging response has already been 
leceived from the state adjutants of 
the American Legion. Lists containing 
thousands of member prospects have 
been received from affiliate member 
organizations of the FCA. Also, in 
conjunction with the program the FCA 
has prepared a new brochure entitled 
"Better Informed Citizens." and a four 
page pamphlet relating the historv of 
the FCA. what a local film council is, 
the formula for a successful council, 
and the groups which should partici- 
pate in local council activities. 

FCA's goal for April, in short, is to 
begin to produce, in ever increasing 
amounts, local community councils, 
which can promote organized coopera- 
tion among agencies, groups and in- 
dividuals and to assure better selection 
and wider distribution and more effec- 
tive use of audio-visual materials.

Notes for Our "Time Capsule" 


keflectiojNs on educational television 

iROGIUvSS IN EDt'CATION is a slow and ofteii- 
|iaititiil process. Tlie e\(iliili(>n of "xisiial ed- 
ucation" lias had its lull share of lioth procras- 
tination and denial from within the profession and 
among citizen-leaders of school afl'airs. F'rom the he- 
ginning, the profession has resisted "mechanization"' 
of the learning process. com|ile\ities of etpiipment, 
and the ill-timed cries and claims of "\ isionaries." 
The obstacles to visual education progress could well 
begin with its lack of orderly plan and end uilli tiie 
confusion that has persisted through the last half- 
century through the lack of professional, thorough 
execution of the generally-accepted and undenia- 
ble elements of such a plan. 

In the second year of this new half-centiu\ there 
is an earnest and completeh functional effort being 
made to ilistill educational sound motion picture and 
filmstrip utilization down to the countv and citv school 
system level. The map of these LTnited States is slowly 
filling with the shaded areas wbich indicate the exist- 
ence of such localized-service facilities, graduallv out- 
nioding the cumbersome, less-integrated and over-cen- 
tralized state "mail order" film libraries. The pros- 
perity of filmstrip producers is indicative of the grad- 
ual trend toward classroom recognition of the basic 
premise of the lighted screen on its simplest and most 
basic level, at the individual teacher's fingertips when 
the lesson plan requires. More efficient, less cumber- 
some equipment has come from the manufacturers of 
sound projectors, filmstrip and opaque equipment to 
speed the dav of classroom utilization uationtcide. 

State funds from sympathetic legislatures in Cali- 
fornia. Arkansas. Oklahoma have aided these trends. 
More may well be impending in the Carolinas. Georgia 
and other states where plans understandable to educa- 
tors and administrators and bearing their endorsement 
may secure legislative aid to overcome county and lo- 
cal deficiencies. 

The recent report of the Michigan Audio-\ isual 
Association on i>rogress made without such aid in 
fourteen city and county systems is evidence that 
similar, though more gradual, gains are being made 
by liard-Hiirking professionals devoting their full ener- 
gies and ideas to the job at band — a job of tireless, 
thankless but urgent Iv inq>ortant service to their 
schools on a thoroughly practical basis. 

And then — now — each day of every recent month 
a major effort to confuse, divide and perhaps to de- 
stroy these painfullv-built programs of progress is be- 
ing made by a small but determined group of empire- 
builders. These new "visionaries" are the ambitious 
salesmen of educational television. One of them is

The Audio-Visual Journal 

creatinf; a new profesiiioiial tlirone for himself as di- 
reelor of j\ew York Slate's proposed network of ed- 
ueational television stations, for wliich he is billed as 
"drawing the jdans." Tliat wonhl he Paul Reed, pres- 
ently of the Koeliester Piil)lic Schools and editor of 
the Educational Screen. Another sits in the execu- 
tive chair of the Department of Audio- Visual In- 
struction of the ]NEA. He is Mr. James MacPherson 
who has puhlidy envied the New York t.v. program 
(initiated in the Governor's cabinet as a political ma- 
neuver) and who has endorsed educational television 
as llie "answer" to the "impossil)le" costs of present 
classroom films. 

Their <o-workers are busy ])eople. They are pres- 
enth flominating almost every program presumably 
devoted to audio-visual education. Illinois' struggling 
audio-visual group has no announced plans to end that 
state's deartii of progressive legislation on a practical 
basis. But at this year's first annual meeting, Illinois' 
audio-visual directors will be inspired by Chicago's 
jiresent school radio chief wiien he tells them of the 
million-dollar plans for a <i\ic "dream" center of ed- 
ucational telecasting that now exists only on paper, ii 
at all. 

Superintendents, curriculum supervisors, PTA's are 
all fertile ground for such imaginative, "progressive" 
visionaries. Some legislators will listen most sympa- 
thetically to the creation of administration-controlled 
channels for such powerful thought-control apjjaratus. 

Shades of George Orwell! What are we thinking of? 

Where is the solid proof of the classroom value of 
educational radio on a broad basis worthy of its com- 
paratively puny costs? Where are the clear cut an- 
swers to the need for mass telecasting of even the finest 
non-commer<'ial educational films? TV is a mass me- 
dium. Have we really done so well with the educa- 
tion of our classroom pupils that we are now ready to 
begin saving the housewife's soul? Or do the MacPher- 

Expensive apparatus such as this W OI-TV tower 
fins little ill cnmmoii uith school needs . . . 


sons and their Boswell. Paul Reed, really think that 
such stations will be built and maintained from New 
York to California for the dissemination of classroom 
learning? Of course not! But the confusion in their 
minds is eviilent from constant references to the value 
of the small t.v. screen as sufficient for classroom re- 
<-eption. etc. And Mr. MacPherson's ardent testimony 
before the FCC in which he denounced the cost of the 
Los Angeles City Schools film program and offered 
the existence of a t.v. station there as the answer to 
that city's needs shows what they are up to. 

Educational t.v. stations are powerful thrones wliich 
these hopefuls want to share. Each of them should be 
given a month's leave to operate the nation's first exist- 
ing, genuine-pioneer, educational television station at 
Iowa State College, WOI-TV. The lucky owners of 
television sets around Ames learned about the strip- 
tease last month from that great delineator of culture. 
Milton Berle whose illuminating Texaco Star Theatre 
pavs Iowa State College every week for the privilege 
of edu<'ating the regional citizenry on the art of low- 
comedv in its lowest form. Any single week you can 
learn froui Roy Rogers. Prof. Ed. I Toast of the Totcn I 
Sullivan: Martin Kane. Private Eye: Garry Moore: 
Dr. Kate Smith: Tom Corbett, Space Cadet; Captain 
Video: Gabby Hayes: Cisco Kid: Groucho Marx: Lu- 
cille Ball: Red Skehon and Martha Rayc on WOI-TV. 

The innuendos of W hat's My Line are closely fol- 
lowed everv Sundav evening by some good tips on 
homicide from The W eb on Iowa State's pioneer ed- 
ucational t.v. station. And soon after, good old Martin 
Kane cleans uj> your Sunday evening of culture ad- 
vancement while Iowa State has put away another 
fat little sum to maintain this expensive comnnuiica- 
tions outlet. 

We have no quarrel with progress nor any doubt of 
the entertaining qualities of any of the above popular 
favorites. But we have serious doubts of the future of 
American ediu-ation when it combines these two in- 
gredients in the name of public service. 

More important we will fight to the limit those who 
would set aside all these years of i)ainfully-won 
achieveiuoiit on the sound basis of classroom utiliza- 
tion of soundly-created audio and visual tools. Pro- 
fessional audio-visual leaders know what is needed to 
complete the evolution of this field from the assembly 
hall to the classroom jjhase. They know how difficult 
it has been to ])repare and to secure endorsement lor 
soundly-written plans for statewide programs. 

Producers of classroom films will understand that 
those who projjose ill-conceived visionary schemes in 
the name of education are today's real obstacles to 
continued progress. 

The inifinished j)yramid of progress will not be im- 
proved by the erection of a television antenna. Not 
until the last stones have been laid to reach the top. 
at least. — OHC

Conference Studies Role of 
Films in Int'l Problems 

♦ Extensive use of educational films 
was featured throughout the National 
Conference on the United Nations 
called by the L . S. National Commis- 
sion for I NESCO. a citizen group es- 
tablished by Congress to work with 
the I nited Nations Educational. Scien-

blocking the road to peace. Officials 
of the I nited Nations, the UTN Spe- 
cialized Agencies, the U. S. and other 
governments, as well as experts from 
many non-governmental agencies par- 
ticipated in the conference activities. 

To illustrate the use of educational 
films in promoting thoughtful consider-

♦ One of the most important prob- 
lems of our time is squarely faced in 
a new 16nun sound film produced by 
Encyclopaedia Britannica Films. The 
traged\ of ex<essive drinking is por- 
Iraved in Alcoholism, 22-minute film 
designed to focus interest on this dis- 
ease, to change the climate of public 
opinion that surrounds it and to dis- 
pel some of the ni)ths which have 
surrounded an illness which needs 
sympathetic treatment. 

Alcoholism attempts to show how 
the roots of excessive drinking are 
imbedded in personality difficulties 
often relating back to the early forma- 
tive years of the victims childhood 
and how the patient can be treated 
through psychotherapy. The film pre- 
sents a case study of three types of 
alcoholics tracing the development of 
the disorder from its origin. 

The case of Ed Griner is given in 
detail. Ed began as a controlled drink- 
er, but gradually reached the ])oint 
where he was drinking heavily and 
finally reaches the point where he goes 
on extended benders. He tries several 
methods of treatment but none are suc- 
cessful for long. The film shows him 
at a clinic for alcoholics where his 
case is reviewed and an intensive study 
of Ed's personality is made. One im- 
portant difficulty they find is that Ed. 
though moderately successful in his 
work, has a tendency to react to au- 
ihoritv and responsibility in the same 
way as he did to his father's overbear- 
ing demands for perfection. The doc- 
tor tells Ed of other cases of alcohol-

cooperation. Al-

tanica Films' netv

ism similar to his own. yet different. 
The film cites two of these cases: 
F rank Jarley. a machinist who used to 
go on solitary weekend benders and 
then sober up for Monday's work and 
who. after treatment, joined Alcohol- 
ics Anonymous: and the case of Mrs. 
Lenford. a young housewife, who 
drank a little all day long without 
actually getting drunk. She too is 
under treatment. 

Ed remains under treatment for 
some time, learning through inter- 
views with the doctor and others on 
the clinic staff to understand himself 
and the forces which drove him to 
alcoholism. He understands that he 
can never again be a controlled drink- 
er and must never risk taking a single 
drink. The film ends with a plea for 
a better understanding of alcoholism 
as an illness and of the need for in- 
creased treatment facilities. 

Intended for high school health and 
h\giene classes as well as college and 
adult levels, part of the film, which is 
devoted to physiology, is closely related 
to the EB film. .Alcohol and the Human 
Body. Alcoholism was produced in 
collaboration with Selden D. Bacon.

Art Creativeness k Filmstrips 

by Ann M. Lally 
of The Chicago Board of Education 

WHILK CREATIVE ART WORK is l)asc<l ui.n,, the 
natural interests of children, teachers in large 
classripoin situatit)ns are constaiitl) faced with the 
problem of stimulating groups of hoys and girls in the 
direction of purposi\e creative activit). 

Making the children nanl to "dig in" is as essential in 
an art lesson as it is in anv other area of human learning. 

First-hand experience such as plaving outdoors, or help- 
ing at home or classroom acti\ ities like stor\ -telling often 
serve as the theme of a young child's painting. Film- 
strips of general interest to voung people prox i<le another 
stimulu.s for child art. 

hi utilizing filmstrips for creative picture making, best 
results will be secured when the teacher introduces the 
strips to supplement the experience and personal recollec- 
tions of young people. At the primary level the strip 
Betty and Mother Go Shopping^ was used when a class 
decided to work on story-telling pictures about local shops. 
General discussion on activity within different stores was 
followed by a showing of the strip. As a result, manv 
unmentioned items and anecdotes were added In the 
children to the list of experiences they wished to include 
in their pictures about stores. 

"Coinniunity Helpers" Series Stimulates Drawing 

Other filmstrips which primary teachers may use suc- 
cessfully in stimulating creative pictures are The Fireman; 
The Postman: and The Policeman.'- These strips serve to 
supplement children's knowledge of the work done bv uni- 
formed comnmnitv workers. The discussion following the 
showing of the filmstrips usuallv reveals several dramatic 
work responsibilities of one or the other service group 
which boys and girls have not previouslv considered as a 
source of picture material. In one primary class a strip 
served as the inspiration for a folio of creative portraits 
of 23 different types of workers. Seeing the fireman, the 
postman, and the policeman, stimulated a discussion of the 
importance of the milkman, the school engineer, the win- 
dow washer, and a host of others included in the portrait 
series develof)ed by the boys and girls in this single class. 

Several intermediate-grade classes interested in design- 
ing transportation murals have enjoyed viewing Chicago — 
Transportation' before proceeding with their composi- 
tions. The all-inclusive nature of the strip prompted one 
group to develop a designed interpretation of the rail, 
waterway, highway, and air facilities of their city. In 
another class the children decided to portray the activities 
and attitudes of people inside busses, trains, street cars, 
and airplanes. Still other boys and girls drew and painted

uhat the\ lliiiuglit they might see from the windows of 
conveyances travelling about the cit\. This approach re- 
sulted in startling air views, as well as more ordinary 
interpretations of the local scene. 

Science filmstrips can frequently be utilized in inter- 
mediate and upper elementary grades in launching dis- 
cussions of plant forms, animals, insects, and other crea- 
tures. When such strips are used to motivate interest in 
art activities they should be shown rapidly, and followed 
immediately with a discussion in which boys and girls 
have an opportunity to tell about other real or imaginary 
nature forms they feel could be used succesfuUv in crea- 
tive art experiences. At this point teachers can demon- 
strate that art does not slavishly copy nature either in 
form or color, and that boys and girls have an oppor- 
tunity to make up new animal and plant forms of their 
own. as well as develop color combinations which are 
pleasing to them. 

Filmstrips on sports, on health practices, on social cus- 
toms and a variety of other subjects can be used as 
motivational pivots in launching teen-age high school 
students on original pictures or designs built around one 
or the other of these interests. Teachers using general 
filmstrips as a stimulant to art activity must at all times 
remember that they represent one possible and relatively 
new method of generating original thinking or individual 
emotional responses. They should never be used to limit 
£i young person's creation. 

These Color Filmstrips Show Original Concepts 

The art filmstrips Contemporary American Painting* 
can be used in many ways in high school and junior 
college art classes. Their function is more than that of 
stimulating an original a|)proach to subject matter since 
they represent a collection of the original work of a num- 
ber of outstanding American painters. They can be studied 
by young people for design quality, for color handling, 
and for general appreciation. 

The use of the fihnstrip is in its infancy in art educa- 
tion. Experimentation with general filmstrips have proven 
to be an interesting additional method of motivating two- 
dimensional creati\e art expressions. The use of art film- 
strips has been found to broaden the young person's 
appreciation of the \arious ways in which a picture may 
be developed and completed. 

A great many more strips are needed in all areas. Pro- 
gressive art educators hope that, as additional art and 
craft filmstrips are prepared, many points of view and 
varied approaches to materials will be included. •

Your Money's U orth in Better Tools: 

How to 

Your School's 
Audio -Visual 

• by G. W. Remington 
The University of Minnesota 

Basic tools like tlie tape recorder and filni strip 
projector serve these primary i^raders. 

audio-visual education? This is a question which 
we hear very often from school administrators and 
from teachers. It is a question which cannot be answered 
glibly with so manv dollars per pupil or teacher for all 
schools, but one which has to be worked out for each in- 
dividual situation. The question can be answered only in 
terms of educational goals. 

Is the school to have a well-organized program of audio- 
visual education under the direction of a trained co- 
ordinator with the material carefully selected to integrate 
with the units of the courses of study? Or is the school 
just going to run a program of films in the auditorium or 
central projection room? If the latter, the cost will not be 
much and the educational outcomes will be less. If the 
first type of program is desired, then there are three fac- 
tors to be considered in working out the cost, administra- 
tion, equipment, and materials. 

Provide a Coordinator For \ our Program 

How much will the administration cost? One of the 
leading men in this country in the field of audio-visual 
education suggests one full-time visual education staff 
member for each 25 teachers. It is reasonable to assume 
that as faculties become larger, this ratio ma\ become 
smaller. So staff cost is one factor, and an important one. 
If the teachers are not trained in the use of audio-visual 
materials, then the importance of the co-ordinator is in- 
creased, for he must take charge of an in-service training 

The amount and kind of equipment is a second factor. 
To determine equipment needs, it is necessarv to know 
how nmch time it is desirable for each teacher to spend 
using such equipment. Do you think a teacher should use 
a motion picture in each of her classes once each week? 
This will mean that a projector for each five teachers 
should lie pro\ided. If you think that a film in each class, 
once every two weeks is sufficient, then a projector for each 
ten teachers will be needed. This same time application 
can be made to determine how many slide lanterns are 
necessary, how manv film strip projectors or 2 x 2 slide 
projectors should be supplied. 

Owning .Materials May Be a Real Economy 
Material costs will be the third factor. Should they be 
rented or purchased? This again is a problem for each 
school to determine. Obviously such low priced materials 
as film strips, slides, transcriptions and recordings are 
more economical if purchased outright. If a motion pic- 
ture film which costs S5().00 is to be used 10 or 15 times 
during a year, it would be better economy for the school 
to purchase the film, for with proper use, a film can be 
run several hundred times before it is worn out. If a 
film is needed only a few times during the year, then 
pcdiiomy will be best served by renting the film from a 
film library. 

In determining cost, the life of equipment and materials 
nmst be considered. A good motion picture projector or 
a good film strip projector should, with proper mainte- 
nance, last about eight years. A film which is used 15 
times in a year should easily last eight years, so original 
costs of e(]ui])ment and materials should be considered not 



just as part of the budget in the year they are acquired, 
but rather a budget should be planned which w ill spread 
the cost of such equipment o\er a period of five to eight 
years. Even though it may be a part of your long time 
goal to have a projector for each five teachers, you will 
not want that much equipment at the beginning. It will 
take some time with a good in-service training program 
before ail teachers will see the value of using visual educa- 
tion materials freely and often. 

\\ liat It- tlie Cost of a \^ ell-Koimded Prograiny 
Let us take a hypothetical case and figure the cost of a 
well-rounded })rogram of audio-visual education. The 
equipment and materials used in this problem may not 
fit the type of program every school may want, but it 
will show how to estimate costs of a program when goals 
for an individual school are set up. \^V will assume that 
after several \ears of planning teachers are using audio- 
visual materials to the extent that each teacher will need 
a motion picture projector and a film strip or 2 x 2 slide 
projector once each week for each of her classes, and 
that she will be making liberal use of slide lanterns, 
opaque lanterns, record players, etc. The school chosen 
will be a 15 teacher school with 450 pupils, which is quite 
typical of manv Minnesota schools. 

The first essential, of course, will be to secure a staff 
member with training in audio-visual education to organ- 
ize the program, help with the planning and integrating 
of audio-visual materials with the curriculum and conduct 
a good in-service training program with the teachers. He 
should be given one-half of his time to devote to the 
audio-visual program. If his salary is S3000. then S1.5U(l 
of this may be charged against the audio-visual budget. 
In the matter of equipment, let the school begin with 
one each of the commonly used projectors, that is one 
motion picture projector, one combination film strip and 
2x2 slide projector, one S^^ x 4 slide lantern, and one 
combination record and transcription player. The follow- 
ing costs are estimates onlv: 

1 16mni sound projector and screen S500.00 

1 film strip and 2x2 combination 90.00 

1 slide lantern 90.00 

1 combination record and transcription 

player 150.00 

Each teacher will use each projector onlv one dav in 
three weeks so material costs will not be too high to begin 
with. Suppose each teacher uses 12 films per year in 
each of his classes and teaches on the average of four 
different subjects per day. This would mean 48 films per 
year per teacher or 570 films per year. However, let us 
assume that the films have a multiple use factor of 2. 
that is. they mav be used bv two teachers in two different 
courses instead of by just one teacher. That would cut 
the number of films to half of 570 or 285 per year. As- 
suming an average rental cost of SI. 50 per film, the school 
would spend S427.5() for film rentals. Then if the school 
spent an equal amount for purchase of film strips, slides, 
recordings, etc., the annual cost for materials for the first 
year would be -S855.00. 

The second vear. the cost for materials could be the 

same, and the only equipment added would be an opaque 
projector for .S2o6.00. 

At the end of the third i,ear. the teachers will be using 
the materials so liberally that another motion picture 
projector at S5()0 and an additional combination film strip 
and 2x2 silde projector at S90 will be needed. Bv this 
time, the school will own some of their materials and an 
increase of 50' < in the materials budget will be sufficient 
to take care of additional materials needed. During the 
fourth \ear. no additional equipment will be purchased, 
and the materials budget will remain the same or about 
si 20(1. 

By the end of the fifth year, the program will be moving 
in high gear, and another motion |)icture projector at 
??50() and another record and transcription player at 
sl50 will be needed with the materials budget increased 
to .S15(X). During the next three years, little or no equip- 
ment will be needed, and the S1500 mav be sufficient to 
lurnish materials. Now let us figure the total cost of the 
program over an eight year period. 

8-year Annual 
Total Cost Cost 

Coordinator at S1500 per year .812.000 .Sl.500.00 

.3 16mm projectors 1.500 187.50 

3 2x2 film strip combinations 270 33.75 

2 recording and transcription players.. 300 37.50 

1 slide lantern 90 11.25 

1 opaque projector 200 25.00 

Materials first three years at S855.00.... 2.565 i 
Materials next two years at .Sl.200.00.. 2.400 1.183.12 
Materials next three years at S 1.. 500.00 . 4..500 \ 

.S23.825 §2,978.12 

The average would be about -§3.000 per \ear. -§200 per 
teacher and about -56.66 per pupil. 

Good .\udio-\ isiial Equipment Is .\n Investment 
The unit prices used in this article may vary somewhat 
from actual cost figures. It is possible now to buv good 
classroom motion picture projectors for considerablv less 
than .S500 per unit. If a school has a standard projector 
for auditorium use it could save some money bv buving 
lightweight projectors for classroom use. There are sev- 
eral good lightweight projectors on the market now. 
Capital invested in audio-visual equipment is not great 
when compared with that invested in science equipment, 
commercial department equipment, shop equipment, etc. 
Quite frequently a school will spend a sizable sum for a 
piece of laboratory equipment which is used only a few- 
times during the year, while projection equipment can be 
kept busy every day in the school year. If teaching effi- 
ciency can be increased from 20 to 40% by spending 
§6.00 annually out of the S160.00 per pupil cost of educa- 
tion, the monev would be verv well spent. 

I wish to emphasize again that the problem used in this 
article is only a hypothetical one. The amounts of mate- 
rial and equipment may or may not be what a school will 
want or need. They are used only to show how a school 
may set about to plan its audio-visual program. The needs 
of a particular school may make the costs vary consider- 
ably from those of this problem. Thev could conceivablv 
be considerablv less or considerablv more. •

resented a unified drama and this cine-

Pawtucket Schools Score 10 Year Film Pro g ram Success 

B&H Filmosounds play basic role. The Pawtucket (R.I.) 
Schools' tihii program has been a success right from the 
start ten years ago. Today the city's schools use twenty 
16mm sound projectors for the three-thousand-odd class- 
room showings every year. And the program is continu- 
ally expandingi 

Here's what W. E. Borube, Director of the Audio -Visual 

Department, has to say about his experience with Filmo- 
sound projectors: 

"No small factor in the success of our film program is 
the dependability of Bell & Howell Filmosound projec- 
tion. This equipment is ruggedly built, quiet and depend- 
able in operation. Filmosounds have proved themselves 
in the varied and hard use we have put them to." 


The modern equipment at the disposal of this L-llicitnl t-uM as.-jures 
the continued success of Pawlucket's Audio Visual program. 

16mm Single-Case Filmosound. For classroom or auditorium, 
for sound or silent films. Will reverse or show still pictures. 
Completely contained in a single case. Built-in 6-inch speaker 
operates within the case or removed from it. Larger, separate 
speakers available for single or multiple use. Brilhant lifelike 
motion pictures, natural flutterless sound. 

Guaranteed for life. During life of product, any defects in workman 
ship or material will be remedied free (except transportation). 

Success of PawUiciiet lilm program leads to central truck delivery 
service for rapid distribution of films and equipment to all schools.

The Eastman 
16mm. Projector, 


The complete high-intensity Model 2S arc 
unit, ready for use. While designed and 
constructed to be your permanent 16mm. 
installation, it is nevertheless portable with 
minor disassembly. (The tungsten model, 
shown below, will be found adequate for 
average-sized halls and auditoriums.) 

Designed for theater-quality perform- 
ance even under difficult conditions, this 
new precision-made, heav\-dut\ sound 
projector gives you the ultimate in 
I6mm. sound and image. 

Its design principles are unique. A 

geneva movement operating in a sealed 
oil bath is the intermittent mechanism. 
It transports films surelv and gentlv. 
Separate motors drive the geneva move- 
ment, the main projector mechanism, 
blower, and reel arms — eliminating belt 
and chain drives — isolating the projec- 
tor from the shock sources these create. 

The screen image is flawlessly bril- 
liant. Kodak's finest optical s\stem — 

Liime>iized Kodak Projection Ektar 
Lenses //l. 5 (in a choice of four focal 
lengths) — provides a picture in sharp 
over-all focus, with a complete, natural 
range of color tones. 

The sound is amazingly faithful. 

Kodak's optical and electronic engi- 
neering provide high-fidelitv sound, and 
exceptionallv stable sound drive elimi- 
nates mechanical flutter. Sound optics 
may be focused to get the best reproduc- 
tion from all types of prints. 

In short, the Model 2 5 will stand up 
and deliver the very best in sound and 
image, vear after year. For complete de- 
tails, see your Kodak Audio-Visual

An Editorial Foreword 

rpHE FIRST special guide to the 
-*• many hundreds of sports, physi- 
cal education and recreational films 
available to our schools, community 
groujis. churches, industrial and la- 
bor organizations, etc. was inaugu- 
rated in 1947 as a cooperative ven- 
ture shared hy the present Editors 
and the forward-looking staff of The 
Athletic Institute. Inc. 

This neu guide brings you up-to- 
date listings of nearly 1,000 such 
subjects, eliminating many older 
tiliiis and adding scores of useful 
new subjects. It will be supplemented 
bv a special bulletin of correction and 
addition just as soon as this edition 
warrants the inevitable follow-up of 
that kind. Only principal sources are 
listed in this issue but it is well to 
keep in mind that manv hundreds of 
i-ominercial and educational film li- 
braries, some of them in your imme- 
diate community area, have stocked 
and can rent or loan subjects listed 
here. Your local film library can help 

ctieck your guide copy or write to 
nearest listed source for further in- 
formation. Free loan films available 
from national distributors are avail- 
able only from their own network of 
distribution points. 

These are technicalities of good 
film usage; much more important is 
the content of the films themselves 
and the immense good which they do 
fur the audiences which enjoy them. 
( lubs and organizations using many

ments of sport skills from film ses- 
sions. The large number of progres- 
sive coaches who now use their own 
movie techniques, supplemented by 
the loan of these available films, is 
e\ idence of their teaching value. 

In this field The Athletic Institute. 
Inc. has made a contribution through 
its growing library of the Beginning 
Sports Series, available in both 
sound and silent filmstrips. The very 
economical cost of these programs 
|ilus the sound instructional technique 
ciiiplovt'd in their making has 
brought a new appreciation of visual 
education potentialities throughout 
the athletic education fraternity. 

Content compilation of this new 
guide was made by special editorial 
researchers on the staff of Ske & 
Hkar. Simplicity and accuracy in de- 
tail and the largest possible coverage 
of available films were primary edi- 
torial considerations. It is hoped that 
these aims have been achieved and 
that yfiur 1952-5.S edition will get as 
dog-earned and well-used as many of 
our friends have indicated of the pre- 
vious issue. That will be our meas- 
ure of the value of this contribution.

factor in which films help fill a winter's evening or give 
some important minutes of relaxing personal interest to 
factory workers at noon-hour showings. The attendance up- 
swing which almost always accompanies a publicized film 
showing is further evidence of wides|)read |)ublic appre- 
ciation and interest. 

Educational authorities have recognized the importance 
of the screen in modern teaching by the formation of such 
groups as the Audio-Visual Committee of the College 
Physical Education Association. As connnittee mend>cr 
Ross Allen so well said "llic advantages of having liighly- 
shillfil jiiTliiiiiiriw lo serve one conslanlh. In have iheir 
movements available for analysis, lo have their skill and 
coordination ohjeclives for youthful performers lo attain, 
have enriched our teaching. A single picture can replace 
most effectively so many words."

Tips for (Jood Shows: Preview 
all instructional-type films be- 
fore class or groun showings so 
that you may prepare the lesson, 
including key questions for re- 
view after the showing. Tell the 
class what to look for; review 
with tiiem what they have seen 
right after the showing. A good 
film lesson is only as valuable as 
your preparation makes it. 

Projection eciuipment (for 
sound films make sure you have 
a sound projector available) 
should be checked before any 
film showing. Proper room or- 
ganization, with especial care on 
darkening and ventilation, will 
help make any showing a more 
enjoyable and profitable experi- 
ence for your audience. Be sure 
cords are properly attached and 
out of the way of the audience. 
Test the film by running a few 
frames before the actual show- 
ing. Follow the manufacturer's 
instructions on operation and 
threading if unfamiliar with 
equipment. Many of these films 
are valuable color subjects and 
damage to sprocket holes, etc. is 
a needless hazard which you can 

avoid by careful preparation.

Submit New Films: If you is- 
sue a new sports film subject 
suitable for inclusion in this

concerning it and it will be in- 
cluded in an early supplement or

You Should Know About 
Educational Films! 

Only those instructional films produced since 
World War II are completely up-to-date. 

The striking advances made in the pro- 
duction and use of l6mm sound educa- 
tional motion pictures since World War II 
are so enormous that pre-war films are 
virtually out-of-date. New teaching tech- 
niques were developed and perfected dur- 
ing the war by educators and by the 
Armed Forces. Improvements in color, 
sound and subject treatment came out of 
the war. And these important advances 

were immediately incorporated into edu- 
cational film production. 

Thus, only those instructional films 
produced since the end of World War II 
can be considered completely up-to-date. 
Educational motion pictures produced 
before the war — regardless of the pro- 
ducer — are almost as obsolete as pre-war 
world maps and physics without nuclear 

Coronet Films has produced 70 percent more 16mm 
instructional films since World War 11 than the 
other three leading producers — combined! 

This important finding — taken from offi- 
cial records of the U.S. Copyright Office, 
Library of Congress— proves that Coronet 
Films is by far the best source for the most 
modern, up-to-date teaching films in the 

world. The comparison chart below re- 
veals how, since World War II, Coronet 
Films has produced more educational 
films than the other three leading pro- 
ducers combined.

How it works 

An ingeniously designed '"Slip On" Spindle now 
makes it possible to play both large and small hole 
records with equal ease. Merely place the "slip-on" 
spindle over the permanent spindle — press — it's 
locked in place to play up to fourteen of the 7-inch 
"45" records automatically, or single records manu- 
ally. Remove spindle to play standard 78, or flip 
lever to play 33 '3 rpm records. 

Special advantages to schools 

With RCA Victor's new "Victrola" phonographs, 
schools can now enjoy all the many advantages of 
the "45" sj'stem — as weU as new pla>'ing ease and 
high quaUty reproduction of 78 and 33 '.-s rpm rec- 
ords. Existing 78 rpm records can still be utilized, 
while new record purchases are made of the supterior 
45 and 33 '3 rpm records. This conversion to new 
si)eeds is accomplished economically and without 
obsoleting 78 rpm record libraries. 

Vonr local RCv\ Victor dealer will be pleased to demonstrate 
the new "Victrola" phonographs and radio-phonograph com- 
binations. Send r<iupon below for literature describing the 
complete new RCA \'ictor line of "\'ictrola" phonographs.

They can't afford projector trouble 

at North Fork! 

Ikcause of its remote location, the school district at 
-North Fork, (California, can't risk a sound projector 
lirtakdown. The district covers a half million acres in 
the Sierra Nevada Mountains and, although Fresno is 
onlv 45 miles away, many of these miles are vertical. 

To the people of North Fork, sound movies mean a 
lot more than an Audio-Visual teaching aid. They are a 
source of community education and entertainment. 
They are used by the Boy Scouts, Brownies, 4H Club, 
and other community groups. 

Mr. J. A. Thomason, the District Superintendent 
and Principal, and his Audio-Visual Director, Mr. 
Norman Gould, chose a KODASCOPE PAGEANT 
SOUND PROJECTOR for these reasons: 

1. The Pageant is portable, easily taken from place 
to place. 

2. The Pageant is sturdy, viithstands heavy use. 

3. The Pageant is easy to operate uiid rtefiiirns no 

4. The optical system always projects a sharp, clear 
picture — corner to corner. 

5. The sound svstem provides faithful reproduction 
from all types of sound film. 

6. The Pageant is priced to fit the most modest 
school budget. 

And how did North Fork's Pageant measure up? 
AJlvr more than IS months of almost constant use, its 
P AGE AST SOL SD PROJECiOR has never lost an hour 
jrom mechanical, electronic, or optical breaki/oun! In your 
school, as at North Fork, the Pageant will prove a 
useful and dependable teaching aid. 

The Pageant and speaker, in a single, portable case, 
weigh only 33 lbs. . . . list at S-iOO. In a two-case, 
4-speaker unit, S492.50. Why not let your Kodak 
Audio-Visual Dealer demonstrate the Pageant for you

Sir and illAi; 

Battleground: Why We Oppose the TV Boom 


people is carrietl on within tlie walls of a mil- 
lion rlassroonis within the seveial liimdred 
thousand sehool huildin<;s of these I nited Slates. 
These huildings are inereasinf; to the extent of bil- 
lion-dollar construction fjoals to match the enormous 
increase in our school |)opulation followiiif; the war. 

Iliis is the fact which underlies an<l defines the 
most basic goal for real progress in the field we call 
"audio-visual education." It is our first responsibil- 
ity. These young learners and their teachers have 
urgent need of what no serious person any longer 
doubts are the most useful tools for bringing about 
greater understanding of ideas and information lie- 
yond the scope of the jtrinted page. 

And yet the application of tlie motion picture, the 
iilmstrip. the tape or record reproducer, the opaque 
and overhead projector is still limited to a small 
minority of all the nation's classrooms. This is the 
fact. Prove it right or wrong in your own schools. 
Hon- many times is a motion picture shoicn in the 
classroom any day or any tveek or any month . . . or 
even a filmstrip or any kind of lighted picture? 

This is the limiting, undeniable fact which makes 
the economic well-being of the educational film or 
filmstrip producer or the audio-visual equipment 
manufacturer still dependent upon the comparative 
few hundreds of "regular"' customers, ^e marvel 
at the courage and tenacity of those who invest their 
capital and skills serving the unfulfilled promise of 
audio-visual education. 

Do you challenge this realistic appraisal in light 
of the hundreds of new items listed in pages of this 
issue in our Fall Inventory of New Audio-Visual Ma- 
terials? There is a notable lack of large return on 
the balance sheets of any concerns which can be at- 
tributed to real income from real, current school in- 
vestments in new a-v materials or new a-\ C((ui])inent. 
This is still the field of the big future . . . Iiut \\liat 
of the real present? 

It is a field of too-little magazines trying to help 
make the opportunity live. It is a field of the will- 
of-the-wisp, where each new technique and new me- 
chanical marvel is pursued with new enthusiasm . . . 
most often to the neglect of sound, solid and proven 
methods and materials still unused. 

The rural school at Kaiser, Wisconsin has only 
two filmslrips to serve all eight grades. But enthu- 
siasm in Wisconsin is high and so is the budget for 
new "educational" telecasting equipment. Wisconsin 
has done well bv audio-visual tools, however, and the 

budget for the Universit\'- liurcau of Visual Instruc- 
tion is tiic highest in iiistory this year. Nearly 100% 
of the secondary schools are equipped with at least 
one 16miu sound jirojector; many of the larger rural 
or consolidated schools are getting ahead. Continu- 
ing years of teacher training in summer extension 
courses and in the teachers' colleges are helping the 
use of a-y toob ami to implant the desire for more 
of them. 

And what of the Emj)ire State . . . New York? And 
of the numerous other states where a most popular 
subject among the dilletantes of "audio-visual" ed- 
ucation at current meetings is programming for pro- 
posed educational television stations. Here is today's 
great new "challenge" ami it uuist be met I 

But this mechanical means of mass commimication 
does not serve the classroom, except in the confused 
imaginings of the most visionary or for unusual his- 
toric events where immediacy is paramount. It does 
imply a vast new responsibility by school jieople for 
the cultural uplifting of home viewers. At a time 
when education is bard-pressed for teachers and 
teacher salaries . . . for l)uildings to serve crowded 
and ill-housed youngsters . . . for materials of instruc- 
tion . . . legislatures and boards of education are be- 
ing coerced and confused into making funds avail- 
able for television stations for which an omnipotent 
but ill-advised Federal authority has set an "action 
now- or else" deadline. 

Much of the vigor and the precious time which 
should be going into the cause of audio-visual prog- 
ress, school by school, state by state is being dissi- 
pated in the urgent, virulent and well-heeled cam- 
paign labeled "educational television." Look at the 
record and some of the results: 

1. New York State which has yet to have any kind 
of legislative aid for real statewide audio-visual de- 
velopment I such as made California the model for 
the nation a few years ago) is being "promoted" for 
millions of dollars worth of public funds for a num- 
ber of such t.v. station installations. To serve the 
schools? Or to serve ambitious politicians who seek 
the power of this mass medium which thus comes 
into their han<ls? 

2. The editor of one contemi)orary "audio-visual 
journal" is now the ])aid employee of the Joint Com- 
mittee on Edutalional Television. This is the au- 
gust body which included in its printed argumen'is 
to the Federal Communications Commission the state- 
ment that clas-rooni film libraries were doomed as

3. The audio-visual administrator of one Ohio citv 
is already "too busy" for his regular chores. He's 
writing a weekly t.v. show. 

4. The L niversity of Houston, together with the 
Houston Independent School District has been grant- 
ed a construction permit for t.v. facilities by the FCC. 
Ditto Kansas State College, the New Jersey State De- 
partment of Education (action pending) ; the San 
Francisco "Bay Area Educational Television Asso- 
ciation" (action pendingi and numerous other ap- 
plications granted or pending for similiar facilities. 

There is no doubt whatsoever of the power of tele- 
vision as a mass medium, imparting good informa- 
tion or bad: good entertainment or, as it is today in 
tiip commercial sense, pretty bad. We cite TV as Ex- 
hibit "A" in our "Case for Audio-Visual Progress"' 
because its proponents are selling it under false 
labels, at too high a price for an unknown article. 
We attack the nationwide campaign that is being 
waged for the fast dollar tiitli no questions asked. 
We are not in the least awed by the Joint Commit- 
tee's assemblage of the great names who are pre- 
sumed to favor this great cause. 

But we are keenly aware of the fact that the only 
educational institution as yet really operating such 
facilities (Iowa State College WOI-TV at Ames, Iowa) 
has practically proven the fact that a majority of its 
programs must be comuiercially sponsored ( some of 
the worst trash, incidentally) in order to survive de- 
spite its tax-free, interest-free, donated physical plant. 

Wherever state legislative aid is being actively 
campaigned for in the name of "educational televi- 
sion" the cause of similar statewide budget aid for 
belter classroom a-v use, for the establishment of 
county^ programs of audio-visual utilization . . . the 
hope of real progress in this year and next ... is a 
lost cause. We sincerely hope not but see little evi- 
dence to the contrary. 

Unless of course those audio-visual leaders who 
know better can summon up the courage and logic 
needed to properly limit and to help define real long- 
term goals for proving out educational television 
for what it is and wliat it ran do. ^'hy was it neces- 
sary to set the deadline of June 2, 1953 upon tlie 242 
television outlets assigned to education by the FCC? 
Education is the most important single process in the 
nation. \^ e might find out how television could be 
made comi>atible to films and other available tools 
rather than comi)etitive if time permitted. 

But time and the FCC do not permit. So there 
will ])e less school money for real things to help 
real needs . . . for films, filmstrips, equipment and 
|n-(i jcclion facilities in modern school plants.
